Only an idiot would have a 1.6 in their garage.

Smart people WELCOME their 1.6s assploding, because then they get to swap in a 1.8.

Sooo... let's lay this out REAL ******* easy and play 20 questions to hold your hand to let you figure out what motor you're looking at since the googles are confusing:


1) What year is the car? Respond back to unlock the next question.

IF YOU HAVE A ******* 1.6L IN YOUR GARAGE THEN ******* TAKING A ******* PICTURE OF YOUR 1.6L AND THEN COMPARE.

There is no doubt in my mind if you can't figure out the difference of two engines that really don't look similar at all (google images would have been a good way to start), then I know for sure you won't be able to swap in that 1.6. And if by some grace of god you do swap it over, you will blow it up in -2 seconds.

Get one of these for your miata. You'll very much love the butt dyno.

Wow, a little searching shows that the turbo XR2 motor makes about as much horsepower as a NA 1.8. Talk about pissing into the wind...

Cool, so you already have a set of forged rods you can pull out of that 1.6 and swap into a 1.8!

Why don't you read ANYTHING before you comment some stupid **** like this thread?

Does anyone else find it ironic that if he would read our stupid comments that have answered this question 23042830482930 times that he would already have his answer.

Survey says those rods aren't really any stronger than normal BP rods.

I don't know why people cream over those damn XR2 motors.

The only cool thing about them is the valve cover.


Which seems dumb, since it's a cool part on a shitty motor that doesn't fit on other motors that don't suck.

So... lipstick on a pig and all that.
