hi, my 88.5 sammy is burning oil pretty bad. I just did a head gasket and it went together easy. I can find a 1.6 geo bottom end easy around here and have seen adapter kits on ebay. could I used my 1.3l head on a 1.6 block so I can stay carburated with the weber? would there be any power increase? the samurai is gutless. help?

You can use the 1.3 head or you can use the 1.3 manifold on the 1.6 head. You'll get a big increase in power at the bottom end and through the mid range though possibly not much more top end. The Weber carb is about the same size as a stock 1.6 carb (which wasn't available in the US). Its well worth doing, pretty much anywhere in the rev range you just put your foot down and it pulls.

will the 1.3 manifold bolt directly to the 1.6 head without problems? I work at a parts store and checked all the gaskets and the intake came up different
