when i was looking into buying my first NA i drove multiple 1.8s and 1.6s the benefits of the 1.8 are most (if not all?) have abs and slightly more power. but i went w/ the 1.6, the reason was the engine felt like it was much easier to rev so i felt more fun to me
I have never been in a 1.6L, is it really that much faster reving?

Probably because it's got slightly less air to compress (lower displacement). Slightly lighter rotating components probably also helps.

i've owned 4 na6c's and 1 nb i'd say if your broke stick with a 1.6 but if you got monies 1.8 is the way to go more tq! you can go irtb for 1.6 and they go for 1500 for a kit i think its still on sale supposedly it dynos 145rwhp

Most kits are in Japan, but there is one here in the USA that i know of.

I think there is one that is selling/Installing them in Canada too?


PhatMiata
I believe that'd be Chikara Motorsports. They are selling the Mahura kit which includes the Freedom ECU. They're based out of Vancouver, IIRC.

(yes, the website is currently down for construction)

I had TWM ITB's on my 93 Civic bubble, and I'm not glad to say, It was hell getting the car tuned the right way. if you don't use an engine management like AEM, Haltect, etc then you'll have a hard time turning your on. It would take me about 5 minutes just to turn the car on, and hoping it would not stall on me when I'M coming to a stop. Oh, I almost forgot to mention if get ITB's make sure you have plenty of spark plugs laying around, cause when you keep cranking the engine you'll flood your plugs.

I'm not saying not to get them, but if anyone decides to please make sure you have a good tuner who knows how to program your car. and go through my experience

good luck:
