but at least it will be lighter and better at the corners. also revs higher so more upper HP's than 1.8. Can't wait to be finished with this project!

You retards, the 1.6 does not rev higher than the 1.8, nor does it rev faster. Stop spreading m.net aids here.

well, what are you bewsting? the 1.6 or the 1.8? lol

because that would be an even bigger waste of money, especially if you still want to swap to a 1.8 later (which you wont have if you trade for bewst parts) because you will need a different manifold.... one of the most expensive parts

Yes, yes it would be. Which bike itbs work nicely with miatas? as in tps wise i mean. I guess it doesnt really matter since i will be going MS, but just curious, no reason to re invent the wheel.

ITBs+BOOST+TROLLING?=the most greatest fun
