I had the same setup as Rhino until recently.
Unfortunately, the carb was professionally set up for the 1.6 so I never had to mess with the jetting. At this point, the folks at redline are your best source for 1.6 8-valve jetting information.
The other item you need to watch out for are vacuum leaks. When installed, you should have only one vacuum hose installed - running from the distributor advance back to one of the vacuum ports in the center of the manifold or on the carb body itself. All other vacuum ports on the intake manifold should be plugged with a brass bolt and/or JB Weld (or both). Steel bolts will corrode and leak air after prolonged heating and cooling. Small rubber caps may be cheap, but they won't last long.
i hope that this helps!
