thats a unique idea
MK4/MKIV 2.0L AEG/AZG + 16v head swap
This is a budget build... $35 for 16v head, $50 for pistons/rods, etc
work in progress. I'm lacking some aluminum welding of a TB relocation bend.
I swapped 9A pistons and rods into a AZG/BEV block. The pistions had to be machined a bit to clear the oil squiters.
AZG - modified 9A - stock 9A
1.8T hybrid steel bottom oil pan... you never know when you might need an oil return line
AZG/BEV bottom end assembled with 16v 9A rods and pistons. I reused the mk4 rod bearings and piston rings.:
now some attention to the center of the swap, the 16v head:
new stem seals, fine sanded all bearing and lifter surfaces and cleaned all gasket surfaces.
Clean carbon off valves:
head's assembled and time for mockups:
need to relocate TB:
MK4 coolant flange -> 16v head adapter:
I'll be fitting a 20v CPS hall senosr wheel onto the 16v dizzy and use the dizzy as the CPS:
Using an earlier AEG downpipe to mate with 16v exhaust mani. Having O2 bung welded on:

tranny separated and old 8v up on stand:
front end swung open leaving A/C lines connected, waiting for 16v:
older brother watching, remembering it's awkward swap (mk4 2.0L AZG + turbo from 1.8t):
a little fancy hoist driving and 16v is docked:
exhaust connected, coolant hoses, wiring, accesories on:

started it up tonight.
first I pulled the fuel pump and injector fuse and I disconnected the coil pack and ran the starter for a minute to get the fresh oil circulating.
I then replace the fuel pump fuse and cycled the ign a few times to look for any fuel leaks.
Then I replaced the injector fuse and reconnected the coil pack.
It fired right up. Though, with a major exhaust leak that I knew about and #4 cyl misfiring. I only let it idle for a minute.
The exhaust leak is from a threaded hole in the mani I have yet to find a bolt to plug it. The misfire... I don't know yet. I have to address the pancaking silicone bend after the TB before I start it up again.
still have to:
1) torque the drive shaft flanges
2) find/fab a dizzy cover
3) figure out intake
4) lengthen MAF wires
5) address silicone after TB
6) find bolt to plug hole in exhaust mani
7) address #4 cyl misfire (God willing, this will go away)

so, what are the difference in feel from the 8V to the 16V ? noticeable ? gas mileage ?

You are my new hero. I was curious about what other people are watching and stumbled across this thread. I honestly had to dig through my ETKA to make sure they didn't actually offer this combo somewhere (besides here). Looks pretty factory to me & for that, I grant you and a .

Yes, to the OP please tell us about gains, feel, how it drives, etc.

CPS is in the thread....
stock 16v distributor + 20v trigger wheel
I cut/grind the 16v trigger wheel down just enough to slide the 20v wheel over it, then tack welded it.
