hey. i need to know if the intermediate shaft, intermediate shaft sprocket, oil pump, and crank sprocket off the 2L and 1.8L 16v motors are the same? im using these parts in a 2L ABA block so that i can use the 16v head off the 1.8L motor (since it flows better than 2L 16v head) im pretty sure the water and oil jackets will line up but will i be able to use all those parts from the 1.8L 16v? or are the 2L 16v parts different in some way?
Im pretty sure everything should work but if anyone knows the answer to this that would be awesome.
My main concern is the 2L 16v oil pump that it might be a little higher pressure than the 1.8L 16v oil pump. and the sprockets being the right size so all the timing works out.
thanks a lot
matt

Re: are these 2L and 1.8L 16v parts the same?????? (rettahdam528)

They are the same except for the oil pump which does have higher pressure and is desirable.
Your problem will be the 16v belt being short.
