With your energy level, I'd be putting that head back on and running it.

At least it will be running/driving while you build the tall deck.

Thanks
Randy

PS: Post pics of the tall deck nub if you get a chance.

Might help others ID a tall deck.

Great factory combination if the combo can tolerate the compression!!

I've often thought of this same deal only using a G head.

I like it's slow burn characteristics on Turbo Engines.

Detonation is certainly the enemy of all Engines,

Especially so with high torque Engines.

Let us know how it works out.

Thanks
Randy

I've heard of the elusive G head TBI Omnis but have never seen one.

First TBI Omni was 1988 and the last assembly line G head was 1985.

I would really like to see the date code near the #! spark plug.

I love a good mystery!!

Thanks
Randy

"I've heard of the elusive G head TBI Omnis but have never seen one."

That still stands true but as of now I've seen one off a 1986 Omni.

My M/P G head is dated 1991 but it's obviously not assembly line.

I'm old but never too old to learn something!

Appreciate you sharing Todd.

Thanks
Randy

The tall deck came out in model year 1986.

Also, the first model year of the swirl head.

Model years begin before calendar years.

Still, a very early example!!

Thanks

The 1984 model year was the first 2.2 Turbo and they are very common.

There are some 1984 differences as the wastegate is pneumatically controlled.

The 1985 2.2 Turbo Engine is the same but with electronic control.

Thanks
Randy
