The 1.8 has bigger brakes than the 1.6. There are several sources affiliated with this site for even larger brakes that will work with 15 inch wheels. Search for "big brake kit" or "bbk" as it is often abbreviated here. One that is common and works well uses the cheap and readily available rotors for the Volkswagen Corrado. Searching this site for "Corrado" should net you some worthwhile results.

With regard to horsepower:

Metric horsepower began in Germany in the 19th century and became popular across Europe and Asia. The various units used to indicate this definition (PS, CV, hk, pk, and ch) all translate to horse power in English, so it is common to see these values referred to as horsepower or hp in the press releases or media coverage of the German, French, Italian, and Japanese automobile companies. British manufacturers often intermix metric horsepower and mechanical horsepower depending on the origin of the engine in question.
# The mechanical horsepower of 550 foot-pounds per second is approximately equivalent to 745.7 watts.
# The metric horsepower of 75 kgf-m per second is approximately equivalent to 735.499 watts.
# One horsepower for rating electric motors is equal to 746 watts.
# The Pferdestärke PS (German translation of horsepower) is a name for a group of similar power measurements used in Germany around the end of the 19th century, all of about one metric horsepower in size.

Metric horsepower, as a rule, is defined as 0.73549875 kW, or roughly 98.6% of mechanical horsepower.

not sure at the moment, I've chucked some Kseal in for the time being which has sealed it up, at least i should be able to get a few more weeks out of it until the engine is back in the TVR, then can take the car off the road and do a proper job!
