Hey Fellas<br><br>Im writing from Auckland, New Zealand<br><br>I own a Suzuki Baleno 1998 GLX<br><br>Its a 5 speed Manual and has the G16B engine. <br><br>Im curious to what the correct specs for this engine actually are. I have read a few sites on the Net and they all seem to give different answers. <br><br>These are the things I know for sure about my engine:<br>Displacement: 1590cc<br>16 Valve<br>Multipoint Fuel Injection.<br><br>2 things I really wish to know are:<br>Is it SOHC or Twin Cam?<br>What is the Factory KW output for this engine.<br>What are the advantages of a SOHC engine and what are the advantages of a Twin Cam engine.<br><br>Also...<br><br>The Car is totally factory (I lose sleep over this fact every night) so I want to MOD it a little bit. Im not a heavy Modder but I do like the engine to breath abit more which will usually give it a little bit of a power increase. Im talking Filter and Exhaust and maybe some better plugs and thats about it.<br><br>My Question is, is it worth it on this engine or does the engine not have enough grunt in the 1st place for these MODS to make a difference. What im really asking is, is it worth me spending $$$ on the engine when its not gonna make much of a difference to performance.<br><br>Cheers<br><br> <p></p><i></i>

hey, I'm in Auckland too, <br>G16B is a 1.6L engine,<br><br>as for SOHC/DOHC<br>if it's a 4 cyl<br>then, it can have 8 valves, one intake and one outake on each cylinder, if it's got 16 valves, then there are two outakes and two intakes on each cylinder,<br>SOHC = single overhead camshaft<br>DOHC = double -/-<br><br>my G13B is 70bhp and it's a SOHC,<br>if it were a DOHC it would be 100bhp. <p></p><i></i>
