Re: 4-cylinder engine
Thanks -- I stand corrected about the 4-banger. Now I know why the
Fox is such a dog! (Some sort of canine theme going here?) BTW, anyone
interested in a slightly used and frequently overrevved Fox? :)

The fox engine is similar to the 2.0 but besides lacking the 200 cc's, it
doesn't have the compression, stroke, larger intake valves or electronic
timing & knock sensor that the 2.0 does. To make matters worse, on the fox
there's an o-ring in the exhaust in front of the cat that restricts the
exhaust flow of the poor thing to about the volume of a fruit fly's fart.
I don't know what the relative output of the two engines is, but I bet the
2.0 might have 50% more nads than the fox, and that sb fine for the 80/90.
