What is available for my 1.6 8v motor?

I already have a Thorley header, but any advice on---

Cams
Ignition
ECM upgrades


Its not down on power or anything, and with 4.1 t-case gears, 5.29s in the Toy diffs, it turned my 35's just fine. I am just considering some upgrades and havent seen much.

Thanks

Rob

My advice is to talk to Gary at Petroworks. Email or call. He's the man!

There are a few CAMs

ported intake

Weber Carb,,,there are others but Im pretty sure webbers make the most HP

Underdrive pully

Ajustable cam sprocket

put a K&N air filter on it

Exaust

Port match the block

Centerforce II clutch

Iv never been big on ignition upgrages so I could say anything about that. Iv got all that on my 1.6 8v and the thing fruckin RIPS. Its probably putting out a good 120HP Going from stock carb to weber was almost the same difference in power as going from a solid running 1.3 to a 1.6

I had that engine in my soft top with 5:14 T-case gearing and 33's swampers and I had it up to 77mph at like 5-5,000 grand GPS verified (dash said 55)

I'm confused. My 8V is fuel injected. Do you mean going from TBI to a Weber?
i now offer 4 side drafts for 1.6 8 valve, 1.3 8 valve,and 1.6 16 valve...$495. -$575. complete ready to run... more power than fuel injection or weber ,runs upside down.......-jer

BTW- I have a header, decent exhaust (2" flowmaster), a center force II clutch, Free flow air filter.

Can the computer be tuned on these??

I am interested in a 4 carb set up for a 16v, I have a single carb set up on mine (SU HIF 44) but need more power, what sort of figures will your setup put out. I have a DT manifold & 2" freeflow exhaust, over the winter I am planning on some mild porting & maybe a cam change if I can get hold of one.

im expecting output on these motors to be at least 25-30 hp more with your exhaust than stock.... our intakes have no bends or turns i'll have pics on tuesday...- jeremy
