Dual port your going to get a little more power on the top end. Unless you are building a big engine I would stay with single port. I am running a 1600 sp in my bug right now and it has good power for a daily driver. I drive it everyday and 75-80 mph is no problem at all.

I run a 1500 SP in my 70 Beetle. Had heads ported/polished and installed a 1 3/8 merged header w/fat boy muffler. Runs 75-80 all day.

Now Gary, we older dudes need to set an example for the younger dudes! He means 75-80 kilometers per hour, didn't you Gary......

I have had both and for my commute each day it is stop and go thru red lights. I like the Dual port better after getting rid of the non-vacuum advance dizzy and installing a vacuum advance dizzy it is even more enjoyable to drive. Yes it will run 130 km/h(80mph)! Laughing

my 1200 does just fine as my daily. although i would like a bit more ooomph at times, it easily cruises at 75mph.

personally i really can't tell the difference. perhaps if you went all technical with dyno sheets and stuff like that, you may see a little difference, but otherwise, there really isn't much of a difference IMHO.

Yes, your stock 1600 single will run that just fine with nothing else needed.

When i had my 1600 dual port, the top speed on tha highway was about 85 for me. that was with the pedal all the way down, on flat land. any little hill would slow me down to about 80, and any of those long steep hills about 75 to 70ish. And that was with a freshly rebult 1600 dp, but i did have a low CR (about 7-7.5). so i'm guessing with a bit higher CR, it would prolly have a bit more power to it. But now with my turbo, i can cruise 95-100 all day long, and still have some power left....... don't ask me how i know that Twisted Evil
