Just been thinking, I have a Type I, btw, what gains could be made by slapping Type II heads on Type I block, I guess maybe I'd also have to swap the manifold... well those damn 4 banger guys have all the fun frankensteining, why cant we?

there is no difference between changing the whole topend from a TYPE II to a TYPE I bottom end or just throwing in the TYPE II from the very start.

At the time i didnt want to take the chance it not fitting since all the changes in the TYPE II were top end related. I tore apart a seperate TYPE II and a Seperate TYPE I, combined them together to form a TYPE II engine using the TYPE I block that i later figured out, is used in both engines and has no mounting differences.

You must replace the intake. You can replace the heads entirelly with type II heads or convert Type I heads to Type II.

I am currently in the process of converting my Type I heads to Type II heads. The differences include different intake valves, a different cam and possibly a different rockerarm assembly.

I decided to rebuild my heads because I did a P&P on them about 2 years back. Of course I think I am going to go back on them and do a more agressive P&P this time around :D

hey nic how much did that Level10 trans rebuild hit you in the head for. Did you buy the kit and have a shop rebuild the trans for you, or did you buy a newly rebuilt trans from Level10. and again how many bones did you come up off of for that.
