Exclamation Help with swapping 8V to 16V head

Hello guys

To make it short, I have a fiat 131 racing engine (its code is 131C4).

It is very similar to any old fiat 2.0 liters / 8V engine.


I want to swap the old 8V cylinder head with another 16V cylinder head!

Can anyone help which engine exactly shall I take its cylinder head and install it on my (4Cylinder 2.0L) engine.

The engine was well known to be used also in FIAT 132 2.0L 8V.....

Re: Help with swapping 8V to 16V head

Hi Hassam, this sounds like a pretty specialist area. The later Lancia Thema, Delta Integrale and FIAT Coupe all had 16v 2 litre four cylinder engines which I'm pretty certain were derived from the same 8v motor.

The original Intgerales and Themas both had an 8v head as did the FIAT Croma and as they all came about in the early '80s I think it's logical to presume the 131 Racing and 132 engines were of the same series but what modifications were made to them when they became 16v I've no idea.

Middle Barton Garage at might be worth a look, they're obviously in the UK but they might be able to point you in the right direction.

Also DTR who specialise in 124 coupes and spiders could be another source who you can find at

Sorry I can't be more helpful
