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.
t-belt -> 2004 LEXUS GS300 L6 3.0 Liter FI
head bolts -> 91290A560 -> http://www.mcmaster.com (Issam Abed now offers ARP studs for this application.)
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:
