    1.8 to 2.0...

    Hi. Currently running a 1.8 silvertop in mk1 escort with bike carbs,type 9 and 3.5 diff. Would there be much difference in performance etc upgrading to a 2.0?
    Cheers

    probably another 10-15 bhp, it should have noticeably more torque

    Thanks Graham. So more beneficial than just putting 2.0 cams in the 1.8 which would apparantly give an extra 10ish bhp?
