    Not much other than Turbo, but the engine is too small to get large amounts of torque. Engine is more top end HP, rather than torque, just sacrifice off the line for higher end power. I have seen a Del Sol with a B16 running 10's, with only 180WHP.

    There is no way with 180whp unless the car weighed in at 700 ish pounds.

    You want more tq than go with a larger bore motor.

    I have a copy of HCI from a month or two ago that has a 200whp B16 buildup in it. 202whp and like 150 tq. They used 12.5 cr pistons with stage 3 crane cams and the twm-or-whatever-it-is manifold. It can be done.

    you have to do more then just put higher compression pistons in there. If you go the NA route, one way is to "stroke" the engine. You put a diffrent crank, rods, pistons in there, and you get like 1.7-1.8 liters. Jun and toda sells a stroker kit but both are 2500ish.

    -raise the compression and/or bore it out if you want to stay NA
    -Swap the block out for a GSR, LS, or B20 block....

    but to really gain torque on a 1.6L....no other way but TURBO.
    save some $$ for a greedy turbo kit.... :unsure:
