somehow or another, my head seized on the GTI. I haven't the time to investigate thoroughly as of yet, but it will not turn (crank turns just fine). In interest of saving massive amounts of time, i'll be swapping out the head and then investigating what happened...
I have a line on a free 83 GTI head, complete aside from the cam (got that part covered)
Aside from having to use non-airshrouded injectors and the like, is there anything i'm really missing from making this work? I should be able to swap the injectors out to non-shroud with no problem i'd assume right?
any other pro's vs con's you guys can think of??

Re: 83 GTI head vs. 84 GTI head.. (PDX Cabby)

The only difference that I know of is the air shroud feature on the 84 head otherwise they are identical. And the mounting lug for the alternator on the 83 is 1 lug and the 84 has 2 lugs. Right above and to the right of the #1 spark plug.
