The 1.6 8v block is the same as the 1.6 16v block. You won't have any trouble (mechanically anyway) swapping the two heads.

Doesn't the 16v have very different pistons too? I think the 8v pistons might not like the 16v head..

I know the exhaust is different, and I would expect the intake would be also. How about the computer? Does it take a different brain to run the FI that comes with a 16V?

The 16v needs a different computer yes, and there are about 8-12 different computers that i know of for the 8v alone. As long as you get the 16v head on the long block and if you want to put the engine in the sammi you will need the harness ecm and airbox as well.

Re: Will a 16v head mount on an 8v block?

About 2 years ago when I was looking for my 1.6, I wanted to go 16v. I found a 8v block and a 16v head.. I think the pistons of the 16v where a little higher... so, Glenn, you are probably the most educated in he subject.. has it been done? I know for sure that the piston heads are different... but height?
Really interested in knowing about this.

I think the differences with the pistons is that the 16v has 4 "divots" on the top of the piston instead of the 2 on the 8v. There would be no difference in deck height, but it would probally no longer be a 'non-interference' engine, if your timing belt breaks, the piston will strike the valves that are open
