BUMP!!!

Another question think I have decided to stick to a small block. . Looking at the c16xe but having a look on the forum most people have the SE motors? Is there a reason for this? The xe must be a nightmare to convert to or something.

I think people go for the C16SE, but not sure maybe take a look at Ben h build diary. Whack some bike carbs on and off you go.

Nicked from a very old thread:

e16se uses air flow meter, c16se uses MAP sensor
e16se uses dizzy, c16se uses a dispac
e16se has no lambda, c16se has lambda

Would probably be a C mate but could I get a c16xe without extending the front or would it have to be a SE?

the c16xe would work, the 8v engines are easier to get adj dizzy for and so cheaper to put on carbs whereas the 16v units need megajolt or another form of standalone ignition system for the timing. 16v will unless far more power though.

16xe I think then if it will fit under a standard round nose was thinking a startlet motor but be assed with the hassle of a turbo

Also think of the heat and having to get rid of it also. Think nudger has a small block 16v engine in his, be worth a read of his thread. Shaft wise if needed some making rather than sleeving a local lad makes the for autograss, ment to be bullet proof as far as if you bend them, heat up, straighten and go again.

I went r1 carbs on my c16xe but I wouldn't go bigger than zx6rs or maybe even go for 40's, but bike carbs may give you abit more space due to design and angle they will sit at also.

Yeah don't see why they wouldn't work, I'd def look into a bogg brothers inlet, for the cost there spot on, but ask for x16xe flange as a c16xe flange is huge and to make it work properly you would have to spend a fair bit on the head to port bore inlets too match otherwise air will be like hitting a brick wall where inlet/head bolt
