So, I"m in the process of building a frankenstein motor. My current plan is to use the '98-on SOHC 16v head on a GTI bottom end.
...but this weekend, I was at the junkyard and ran across a 1.8L esteem. It has a DOHC 16v head. But it's not the GTI head. It's very narrow valve angle, and appears like it might be a chain driven cam and coil-on-plug. Does anyone have any experience w/ these heads? Who thinks it'll fit on a 1.3L GTI bottom end?

The bore spacing is not the same as the G series engines, so, no the head will not fit. Let us know how well it fits in your car when you do the complete 1.8 engine swap... :wink:

Bummer, I was afraid of that.
Sorry, but I won't be going 1.8L, and even if I were, it'd be the wrong car! I'm building a frankenstein for my classic mini.
