    mi 16s engine differences

    what are the differences between the OZ alloy Mi16 and the UK spec

    is it similar to the difference between the 8v's? i found some pretty good info in previous forums on the 8v's. but only found info on the cars themselves when searching for the 16.


    does it limit the potential power? is it $ and difficlut to convert the old to UK spec?

    i keep searching but if anyone canpoint me in the right direction. oh and are ther any external differences so you can pick the diff? if at all

    Hi Renn, I'm no expert but there are 2 issues to contemplate here. Firstly the difference between the 2.0 cast and 1.9 alloy Mi16 motors and secondly the issue between CAT and NON-CAT motors. I'm assuming for now that you're talking about the second issue ie cat/non-cat differences.

    PeterT is one of the resident experts on this forum re these motors and there should be some previous posts.

    I've also participated in a few discussions on the UK forum - have a look at these 2 posts from 205gtidrivers forum:-

    Retarded inlet timing, lower CR and a cat.convertor are three differences. Fixing the inlet timing is cheap. Raising the compression is expensive and would only be done during a major rebuild, as you have to check valve to piston clearances.
