Allrighty all,<br><br>Looking through my factory shop manuals I see that the 90-97 1.3 is a 8 valve setup, the 98-01 is 16 valve. Are they the same block with just a different head, or am I smoking crack and misreading things??? Makes no sence to me <br><br>Loki <p></p><i></i>

The only difference would be in the head. The internals of the 16V would probably be a bit stronger too. <p></p><i></i>

the 1998 16 valves only gives 78 Hp instead of 70 for the 89-97 8 valves so I don't think it's worthed <p>Never underestimate the power of a suzuki. you could be surprised...</p><i></i>
