Then there are a bunch of other metro engines, most of which are the standard high compression type (9.4:1 if i'm not mistaken). This is what makes up the biggest percentage of metro engines you see around.
There were a few lower compression engines (which are obviously less powerful), and the only difference with these was the bigger dish in the pistons. I THINK these engines were mainly used in metro van modifications.
There are quite a few guides out on the internet to metro engine numbers so you can figure it out, with quite a good guide of which engines are more desirable for power so there is really no point in me typing it all out.
Search for "metro engine numbers" in google, or go to ime.org.uk and there are a few articles there aswell.
A High compression metro engine will give about 65hp. Add another 7hp for a large valve MG engine. Low compression engine might make around 59? But the block etc. is the same in all of them so for a rebuild any engine will do (the cheaper the better).

But unless you can find an absolutely mint example of a running metro, any engine you buy now will be considerably past its best and due for a rebuild, so what spec it came out of the factory with makes little/no difference.
