      Oh, wow, that's quite a lot of HP cut off for just .1 liter... Most of Aveo's in Ukraine are also 1.5L, so they're running on quite a bit less horse power over there... And it was also odd for me to hear that they "lift" their aveos instead of lowering them... it's kind of a requirement for the road conditions over there...

      Believe it or not, the thing I noticed most was how odd it was getting in to the passenger (left) side... I'd often sort of fall into the seat. After years of getting into the driver's side of LHD vehicles, you don't realize how you reach out and grab the steering wheel while sitting down. Without it (but subconsciously expecting it to be there in the getting-in process) made for a few comical entrances.
      Haha nice.. the turn signals on mine is on the left hand side...

      I borrowed a mustang LHD from my uncle to "show off with" hehe and in my efforts to do so I accidently got in at the wrong side, and I was so embarrassed

      how is it working the shift with your right hand?, as the mustang was auto

      Just noticed that spark plug wires come in at a 45 degree angle compared to ours... so there are more differences between engines besides .1L displacement difference...

      Yup, the 1.5 is a SOHC 8 valve engine I believe.

      gss you guys are killing me I don't have the faintest idea what you talking about...

      SOHC 8 valve engine????... the website chevrolet.co.za says it has a DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder MPI????

      why does the angle of the spark pugs make any difference?

      the engine you posted a picture of is a single cam engine, in fact the head is so small it has a snout going out to meet the timing belt.


      the 45 degree angle of the spark plugs also shows me it is a 2 part head? the valve cover bolts to a cam carrier.

      Interesting design, like something from russian auto makers.

      The etecII (finally figure out its not a H) isjust a carry over name on your particular engine.

      You're right, the website does say that. And the angle of spark plugs doesn't make any difference, just noting that it is different. They're easier to change, looks like you wouldn't have to take the cover off to change your plugs like we do, that's all.

      Great stuff...

      What is the basic upgrades that you can do to the engine to make it faster?

      cone filter? Port and polish? Branches? Free flow?
