SOHC means single camshaft, Dohc means double camshaft. What year is your car? Is your car carb or fuel injected? what does it say on your valve cover? if you got sideskirts then more likely than not your car is dohc.

Are sure?
I thought u r right, but i have check this page:
http://www.carfolio.com/specifications/ ... ?car=85976

That seems to be my car.

Anyways, is there any physical way to find out that. Maybe some sight in the car or maybe push the throtle and count time to get to some speed.

My car is fast, my dad told me that is really fast. I know this, cz i was asking him to teach my bro to drive, but he denied cz is to fast to learn.

Any good machining shop could build you a complete and functionnal DOHC head for your 1.0l. Are you ready to spit $5000 on it?

if you're talking about swapping just the cylinder head, then I don't think it's possible, the blocks are diff. and have diff. bolt patterns. But if you'retalking about swapping the whole engine ( block+head) then HELL YEAH, it's possible , doable and recommneded.

i want to do an engine swap but its a lot of money and i have a turbo on the 3 cylinder and i wouldn't want to loose that... i also have the underdrive and cam gear for it, machine balanced crank and blueprinted forged rods. so i don't know if its worth it.

however i think my piston rings are fried... how would i know.. i have a lot of blow by now..

Check your compression.Alot of blowby would indicate bad rings.If you need any assistance with your motor,I can help,if you want.Don't take it to a shop and get hosed.Re-ringing one of these motors is not a big deal.
