    Cheapest way to make 1600 kent quick

    Cheapest way to make 1600 kent quick

    i think thats a bit out of his price range... the big 1600 valves are almost as big as you can fit int here i have been told....
  6. yeah it would be easy to make it stay closed longer... but i don't think thats the best way to fix it.. look for that carb you were tlakign about the other da from the lancia turbs

    You can get manifolds that rise a bti don't flow as well though... I don't think the GT head makes a diff.. all the mk2 heads are the same with big valves... i think? its the older non 711M engines that have small valves... To be honest i like the 1600 better.. way lighter just better to drive... and you don't aev to muck around putting the 2L in... no cert needed either. i would go for the big 1300 pistons if you ccan afford it woudl go fucking hard i should have done it but couldn't afford cos you need all new bearings and bolts etc.... and my bottom end was in good cond.. Big carbs a nice idea.. sideys won't use that much more if they are tuned right... and apparently when you are running a lumpy cam it will idle way better with sideys.

    1600 carb is the same as the 2L one... 32/36 DGAV/DGV some of the later ones have a cap over the mixture screw though apparently... it can be removed though...

    pipe looks like its going to the same place but via the carb on your one because you are running an auto choke which is activated by water temp. escorta is that a pic of your 1300? engine?

    hmm.... it looks like a 1300 engine to me... not sure though kinda hard to see on that pic but the waterpump looks close to the deck of the block... which means its a 1300.. check the number son the side though below the exhaust

    Changing the heads around makes no difference in compression... as stated above the only thing that would happen is the valves would be smaller with the 1300 head as most of the late 1600s have larger valves

    Exhaust gasket

    Yeah i think the solution is firmer mounts and a bracket to the exhaust....

    Exhaust gasket

    Yeah i thought about this... is it alright? any exhaust hop should be able to do it aye....? doesn't change the sound or performance aye?
