      They are the same if worked a bit. otherwise, one or the other has MINOR flow imporvements on the intake or exhaust valves. But just grab any ol' head and have it ported and such. They will both come out the same.

      Pic?

      Never heard of that. It sounds like it could be some sort of RF blocker, if it goes to ground...

      A G60 downpipe will fit a 16v.
      I bought one and it bolts up just the same.
      I am adding this b/c if you have a cracked and/or leaking downpipe, the G60 ones you will find for sale have lower mileage on them and are usually in much better condition than the used 16v ones.
      Good luck!

      you sure about that? i thought that the G60 was an 8v head and the exhaust studs were stright up and down? the 16v are angled.

      16v(they might angle the other way)
      /\/\
      G60(like 8v but has the 4-2-1)

      G60=8v head, to the power of 16v down pipe will not work.

      Can someone tell me if a 9A tranny (I think stock 8v tranny) will bolt up to the 9A motor? If not, how can it be made to fit? Aren't the clutches different? How is the gearing on the 9A compare to the gearing on the 2Y?

      I have a 9a on my PL. It will bolt up, but you have to use an 8v clutch (you can keep he 16v pressure plate). THe gearing is identical except for 5th, which is .89 in the 9a and .91 in the 2y (about a 2mph or 100rpm difference at the same speed).

      I am currently in the process of finishing up a rebuild on a 9a 2.0L 16v, and I have run into a sticking issue. I CAN NOT manually crank over the engine when I have a wrench on the crank bolt... Did a COMPLETE rebuild and everything was within specifications.

      If anyone has any information about this I would much appreciate some insight. Is this normal? Or, is this something to worry about?

      - problem is fixed. turned out that the lubrication we used in the head had dried up a little bit...so we disassembled and reassembled the head with new assembly lube.

      this is my belated contribution to the 16v community of the vortex, nothing scientific but it gives a visual representation of the difference between the stock intake came and the exhaust swapped cam.

      Does anyone have any info on building a 16vT?

      And I have a 02A Tranny for my 9A block how do i tell if its from a G60 or not?

      And I would like an opinion on whether or not I should go with a cable clutch or a hydraulic clutch?

      Here is an intercooler from a 93 Saab 9000 CD

      Its about the same size as the volvo one but the ends go down.

      You have to remove your brackets that held the condensor in. (couple of 10mm's

      Next is to grind away at some of the cross memeber.


      (Just grind away enough inside for intercooler to sit in)

      Lastly you get this!

      Cleaned this up last time I saw it. Thought I'd post it here as well.

      Still not sure on the "co/ox valve" labeling. Was hard to make out in the original. Can anyone verify? I can correct and reload image.

      So, are you saying that I labeled that one correctly? Looking at the original pic, it's really hard to tell what it said.

      Did a DIGI 2 16V Swap into my 90 jetta daily driver .........result....works great!

      good strong pull. little headaches, fairly cost effective.
      it never lets me down. never had any intentions of running a turbo or heavy modifications (as its still a daily). but i do know that it is far more reliable than my motronic 16v passat.

      just my 2 cents.....thanks for reading

      what mouts do i need for a 2.0L 16v block to fit in a mk1 ?

      I thought i bolted rigt up .

      I will try and get some pics of this later, but here is what you need to know.

      There are 4 engine mounts: rear passenger side motor mount, rear transmission motor mount, front transmission motor mount, and a front starter motor mount.

      The rear passenger motor mount takes 5 bolts (4 on the motor itself, and one through the mount to the chassis).

      The rear transmission motor mount is a rubber piece that bolts below the steering rack, two bolts through the transmission mount bracket, and then bolts onto the transmission with 3 nuts (note, the transmission must be a mk1 or mk1/2 transmission). See this page for more information on which transmissions will work for a mk1 applciation: http://www.brokevw.com/020mount.html.

      The front transmission motor mount is much like the mk2 transmission motor mount, except it mounts to the chassis in the front, not the rear. Two long bolts go through the mounting bracket and the transmission, and one bolt goes through the mount itself intot he chassis.

      The front starter motor mount is exactly like the mk2 starter mount, except that it has two pieces and a different rubber mount. One piece is a metal "bucket" that bolts to the bottom of the radiator support in the engine bay. The other piece is the bracket that the starter bolts into and has the rubber mount that you have to push onto the end of the bracket. You have to wedge this piece in there to get it to fit correctly, and then bolt up to the starter as normal.

      not similar, the same...the only difference could be knock-sense ignition, and that would only be a single plug.

      to the guy that needs help: re-read this thread and look for the picture of all the sensors. that will tell you what wires go where. if you don't know what they look like on the engine harness, better find out.
