Baratacus is on a distinguished road

The 1.6 will reach the 1.3's max HP at around 4K rpm. it will climb to 50% over the 1.3's rpm by the time it gets to 6K rpm. In many conditions where your 1.3 will start to bog down and drop it's power, the 1.6 will be going strong and not be dropping the revs down. For you to have the 1.6 at an angle or under enough load to bog it down your 1.3L would have already failed. A 1.3 can be built to have the HP that a stock 1.6 has, but it's hard on the engine. With an aggresive cut cam, headders, quad carbs, forged rods and crank, new bearings, an MSD ignition, you're looking at the same cost of a 1.6 swap.
