I guess those dyno danamics read a bit lower then a dynojet? My bone stock 1.6 with an rx7 maf made 97whp and after a set of hks 256 cams it made 114.9. The 1.8 thats in my car now is significantly more powerful then that, i went from running a 10.1 in the 8th mile to a 9.70 without making any other changes.
Back to OPs question. My opinion is as follows, buy a MSpnp or a DIY pnp thats already assembled and learn to tune, then buy a greddy kit and have fun with it, add an intercooler and you can potentially break 200whp.

...or the 2nd if you know where you're going.

ARTech is the guy to talk to if you want to stick with the 1.6.

What if the OP didn't want to mess with VVT and decided to go with a 99-00 head on an 01+ block? Will not having VVT take away that much fun-factor power under the curve?

It depends if you've been to the 10lb/1hp side or not. You cannot unsee the awesome.
