Post 1.3L vs. 1.6L

What are the weights for each, and how much torque does the 1.6L gain? I am trying to stay really light, so is the 1.6L worth it?

Also, are the T-Cases in the Sidekicks divorced like the Sami, or do I need to look strictly for a 2wd(I want a divorced case)?

The 1.6 is heavier, but I don't know by how much, they are both really light compared to damn near anything else. 1.6 4X4's come with a married t/c, but if you by a cheap adapter plate you can run a sami tranny behind a 1.6, which is what most people do.

I put a 2wd tracker tranny behind my 1.6, really like it. Everything is bigger, bearings, shafts, gears and esp. the flywheel. You will need to shorten your intermediate shaft, or buy a modified one from hawk suzuki. Also redrill or reweld the pass side motor mount, and get a cheap elec fuel pump...Everything else will bolt up (so long as its an 8v)...Redrill the crossmember for the tranny and go!

How about the gearing; do you know the ratios?
