      Can someone post a link to the thread regaurding detailed information on how to fix the gears in the odometer. The search is down and I think this would be a great place to stick this in. Its a very common problem including my car right now.

      Flip the bracket over, then you don't have to grind any of it off.

      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.

      Your car sucks, and we have a team of experts working around he clock to prove it.

      Disregard my idiocy....that was an 8valve configuration I mentioned...I'll re-post in the appropriate forum topic.

      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.
