i was recently looking on an italian web site and it states that  i can fit a 16v head onto my supercharged beast with a pair of 45's. does anyone out there know which 16v head will fit onto my engine. i have called so many people that i am beginning to lose hope.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I would give my eye teeth to have a 16 valve head for one of my 8 valve TC 2
liter engines Smiley
But I think it might take a bit more to obtain one Smiley

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fiat 131 16v head will fit without modifications
 
Later 16v Thema etc., will fit but you need to revise inlet and exhaust systems and require new pistons.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


How does that work with the twin 45's and the blower? this is very
interesting to me as I have a collection of 16v engines and a pair of 45's
that I used to have on a 2.0l spyder

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Speak to Guy croft, he supplys a kit with an adapted
mainfold and correct jets etc, complete with carb for
around 500, and if I get any time this yearI might
actually get round o fitting this to my VX coupe.

It does mean a liitle re-engineering to the front of
the car because of the filters and new oil cooler
required.

When I purchased the kit though he reckoned that it
can give up to 180-190 BHP!!

Its wel worth speaking to guy as he is such a nice
bloke and so very helpfull, plus it also keeps a very
important form of engineering alive and well.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Apologies for slow reply been busy. How tractable  - very! I found I could poodle around at 30mph in 5th - remember my final drive was 2000 carb not VX so slightly lower geared but I think even with the VX box you would no have to change gear that often.
