      The exhaust leak is from a threaded hole in the mani I have yet to find a bolt to plug it.

      this was a while ago, so you probably already found one. And I'm not 100% on 16v manifolds... And this may also sound a bit strange.. But....
      Do you have any spare wheel bolts? (I've done this on ABA/Early 8v Manifolds.)

      Yeah, I had it covered moments after I post that way back. I believe it was a M10x1 (fine) bolt. However, that manifold's been long gone

      major obstacles:
      - custom coolant flange adapter
      - custom throttle body adapter
      - cam position sensor (dizzy)

      just a quick question, what headgasket did you use, how did you cover the 3 oil return holes in the block since they do not match the 16v head?

      used a mk4 2.0L head gasket. The head gasket is closed over those oil return holes. Tho the head doesn't quite cover the holes 100%, the head gasket does. So, with lower crankcase pressure there should be an issue. I haven't had any.

      Been following this thread a little and am doing a similar project just with a 1.8t bottom end I see how you installed the CPS did you give any thought to using the cam gear from the Mk4 motor as the CPS is attached to it on the 2.0L as well having both both cam gears side by side they do look the same. Would there be any reason not to try this way and get a block off plate for the distributor? I can take photos if that will help?


      Either way awesome project makes me feel better that I wasn't crazy on how I was going about thing for my motor

      I cut/grind the 16v trigger wheel down just enough to slide the 20v wheel over it, then tack welded it.

      was thinking the same thing. i think he said he didnt want to make the provision to the head to bolt the cps sensor to the 16v head or either it was clearance issues.. I am about to get back on this.

      You can't just drill/tap mounting holes for the sensor into the head. You would need to machine a spot for the sensor to clear the gear. And doing so, you would need to make sure you don't interfere with coolant passages. Also, the 2.0L gear is keyed differently than the 1.8T/16v gear to fix on the camshaft. To get around that you could spot weld the trigger wheel from a 2.0L gear onto the back of a 1.8T/16v gear, but then it makes it just as much work as what I did.

      I explored that route and even went as far as separating a trigger wheel off a 2.0L gear and test fitted a 2.0L sensor under a gear.

      I think the 16V heads for this thread (1.8L PL and 2.0L 9A engines in North America) can be sourced from:
      90-93 Passat 16V
      87-92 GTI 16V
      87-92 GLI 16V
      86-89 Scirocco 16V

      If you want the 2.0L 16V pistons too, the donor would have to be a 90-93 Passat, GTI or GLI (9A engine). Note that many were 8V instead of 16V, so don't buy sight unseen.

      That said, I wonder if a later FSI 16V head could be used, perhaps with MegaSquirt. Any thoughts?

      @ elRey
      I tried searching this thread but couldn't find what exhaust manifold you used to bolt up the stock mk4 2.0l downpipe...what are the options?

      Btw trying to source all the parts for pretty identical build and it is hard...i am starting to give up slightly

      It's been a while, but I think I made a correction after more research.

      use these as reference:

      That's the way I see it. I'd mark the leading edge, but anywhere between the leading and falling edge is fine 1) because you can rotate the dizzy 2) it doesn't have to be dead on. The ECU uses the crank position sensor for precise angle and big/small windows on trigger wheel for which stroke it's on.

      I have a 01 2.0 aeg 8v...Could I use a 16v head off a mk4 1.8 and if so would I have to do anything to the ecu? also why the tb from the lexus?...thicker? I like to do a head swap or beef up what I got now but don't know where to find the complete kits.
