    Power Output of my engine?

    I've been wondering this for ages. It's a 1.6 litre 8v, 16SV engine. 1991 mk2 vintage. The manual claims 60bhp (don't think it states torque), but I've timed 0-60 in 10 seconds, and surely it wouldn't do it in that with just 60bhp?
    Anyone got any idea what the figure is likely to be? Thanks,
    Rob

    Eh? Why would that be? What I do know, however, is that my car tips the scales at scarcely 900kg. That's with elec. windows and mirrors, heated mirrors, sunroof, immobiliser and a few other GL features. If I stripped mine out I reckon I could knock well over 100kg off it's weight. Give it a 1.8 SRi engine and I reckon it'd do 60 in about 8 seconds.
