1.6 or 1.7?

The valve increases (in lift) from .444" to .472" this allows more air into and out of the engine. Chances are however that the stock valve springs are worn out on higher mileage motors. So there is a possibility of valve float at lower RPM's.

Quite a few people on the boards have 1.7's on their cars and report no issues though.
