    1.6 8v bhp

    According to parkers my car has 73bhp http://www.parkers.co.uk/cars/specs/...px?deriv=14855 and my dads has 83bhp and it feels faster then mine http://www.parkers.co.uk/cars/specs/...px?deriv=14844 both of the engines look the exact same so why is the power different?

    if the engines look identical then they will both have the same power

    the entire model had a minor update in 2000 when amongst other things the engines changed from X series to Z series

    for the 8v variants this went from the 73bhp X16SZR engine to the 83bhp Z16SE version

    a few minor changes were made but the main difference on this engine is the fact it went from single point injection (single injector inside throttle body on top of inlet manifold) to multi point injection (4 injecotrs on a fuel rail - 1 per cylinder)

    heres a couple pics to show the different 8v versions

    X16SZR - 73bhp


    Z16SE - 83bhp
