1.6 vs 1.8 Sidekick question

3179 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  AZtoyguy !!
Keeping my eye out for a 4 dr. track/kick to mod to light trail use/ daily driver like Luvmyzuki is currently doing (minor lift, 30" tires etc). The tintop is perfect but just too small for some of our outings.

Is the 1.8 in the Sport model worth going for or not enough difference to bother? Not crazy about the cladding on the Sport but I like the idea of the wider stance.

I know it should have more power but can anyone tell me if it's a noticeable amount?

Thanks for your thoughts

save your money and go with a 1.6 kick....and make sure if its a 5speed and if you have to replace the clutch put a centerforce in it.....with my girlfriends kick sport i replaced the clutch with an aftermarket and it slipped like crazy...

if you buy one 97-98 model roughly let me know. i got an aftermarket stereo adapter and harness plug i need to part company with. we no longer have the sidekick....
