It will most certainly make a difference in power. You will also have to always run high octane fuel or octane boosters as the compression ratio will be in the region of 13.5 to 14:1 so even higher than a LOT of racing engines. so Something in the region of 120 octane fuel will do nicely. You can buy that at some of the performance outlets in SA at around R1000 per 20l last time I checked. Or you can constantly mix zylene and toluene and add to your fuel to give you that.

1.8 head is identical to the 1.6 head.
