The springs on the 16V SOHC head are small, and fairly light.
The good thing is that the valves are too.
While it is not a high RPM screamer like the GTi, it is capable of some extendeed RPM action.
Keeping the lift, and RPM reasonable (under 9mm lift, and 8000RPM) is the best bet.

redline is where its at for the 90mm stroke, beyond that expect possible valve float.
Although easily capable of going beyond the redline, expect rod bolts to escape also.

What is the difference that makes posible to rev a D16 higher than mine g16? I don´t think D16 rods are longer than g16 ones.
what do you think?
