Apparently 1.6 8v (E16SE) pistons in 1.6 16v (C16XE) lower the compression…..
Does anyone know if this is true? Is this a straight swap or do the con rods have to be changed too?
Any proof to this - sums to prove this is the case? What would the compression become?
Or, how should I go about working this out?
Assuming this is true – any ideas on the cost of 4 E16SE pistons?
