range of kits has been specifically designed for the XE & ECOTEC
engine of 1.6L capacity of 16-valve design. All these kits come complete
with an MBE ECU which is ready programmed & ready to use, however
for our higher specification kits we would recommend a mapping session
to fine-tune the engine.
both smoother than the 2.0L throughout the entire rev range with comparative
increase in bottom end torque as well as substantial increases in power
at the top end.
run these kits in a closed cell Dynamometer with various different exhaust
systems and manifolds, so whatever vehicle you put them into and whichever
manifold you use, we are in a position to supply a programme that will
of the taper throttles to this management system, on this remarkable
little engine is startling and produces a greater power increase than
the same modification does for the 2.0L. We have achieved a genuine
164bhp (standard engine is 109bhp) and still have not touched the engine.
The engine is on song at very low revs, and has a torque curve which
is virtually flat from side to side of the graph, whilst the power curve
simply climbs at a very steady gradient.
results have been achieved using a Corsa GSI head, which has larger
ports than later heads, if you are running any other cylinder
head the results can vary. We have had reports of engines producing
10 to 20 bhp less. The more commonly used cylinder head now is the triangular port head as this has a better port shape and gives better throttle response than the GSI version. Please follow link for more information.
