new 1600 or 1641

the motor seems to be going through oil but none on the floor,so i guess its burning it .anyway i've phone round and not many people seem happy fitting a 1641,they seem to think i'd be better off sticking to a stock 1600.shall go with the flow and get a 1600 or strip down my engine and and repair it...
