By 16v do you mean the 1.4 multi air engine head going onto the 1.4 8v engine?

No chance with the MA head.

Why two threads asking the same question in two different sections?

Becuse they are linked mate.

As for heads, If the T-Jet head fits the 8v block then the MA head will fit. Not sure myself though.

If he's got an Evo, ask in the Evo section, if it's a Grande, ask in there. If not, the OP may as well put a thread in the mk2 section as well, seeing as the 16v featured on that model too. Just makes the Forum messy.

It's not clear which version of the 16v head we're discussing anyway- N/A, Starjet, Tjet or MA. While the MA should physically fit, the alterations for the oil ways, solenoids, inlet, wiring, etc make it economically prohibitive. Plus it being such a delicate system that even a fully trained DET would not want to mess about with.
