Re: Does anyone actually do this 16V swap anymore
At least it is somewhat alive. I had purchased a 2.4L DOHC head and a load of other pieces from a guy who tried to make it work on a 2.2L block. I have a 2.5L turbo short block (head is there, but no cam or followers) I want to try to put a Hybrid 2.5L together. I will post some pictures of what I have, particularly anything with a PN on it so maybe someone knows what I have as far as manifolds etc. I have thought about going DIS on it, and actually have an SBECII that would probably do it with a proper chip as it is a fully populated one from a 3.3L 1993 van.
The fellow I bought it from has the FWD adjustable cam sprockets on it and it still has the CMP on the head. Yes, I could probably drop a 2.4L in, but, a 1986 K-car with the DOHC setup on a 2.5L bottom end will be stranger anyway.
