1966 912 additional 15 - 20 hp on rebuild


Vehicle Information: Model: 912; Year: 1966; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): 1582CC; Total Mileage: ?;

I am going to rebuild the engine on the 912 because it is using some oil. I will have the mechanic install new Weber carbs. My question I would be interested in increasing the horsepower output of the engine by 15-20 HP. I do not want to ruin the gas mileage or the reliability of the car. Is this realistic and what would you recommend doing beside replacing the Solex carbs? I enjoy the car but feel that it is a little under-powered.
