When did they change from 8 valve to 16 valve?
simply to get more power I "believe" that 1991 was the first year for the 16v. I have a 1990, and mine is an 8 valve. Hope this helps. -Tony
Will a Geo tracker 16 valve engine block from a 94 or 96 fit in a 92 Geo tracker Which has an 8 valve engine both are 1dot6 L I think?
It will bolt up. You can not install a 8 valve head on a 16 valve lower end without changing the pistons. The injection is completely different and wireing as well as well the computer. I just completed the swap with ALOT of headaches. believe it or not LOL we used a router with a mill bit to cut down the pistons talk about okie but hey its running perfect now 2000 miles later. my…
16 valve engine not put in a Tracker till 1996. 1994 Tracker is 8 valve (but a Sidekick may have the 16 valve in 1994) Actually there were 16 valve Trackers before 96. I have an early 95 which is 16v version. I believe 16v engines started somewhere between 91-94. I do know that the valve covers usually state 16 valve when it is. ,the spark plugs in a 16 valve are waaayy down in…
I'm sorry, the 16 valve head will not work on the 8 valve short block. The piston crowns are cut differently so replacement of pistons would be necessary. It is my understanding though, that it COULD be done if the pistons were replaced. I have never attempted this, but by looking through the parts catalog, it seems that this is feasable.
Is a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am 4 cylinder engine interchangable with a 1995 Pontiac Grand Am 4 cylinder?
Should you change Toyota engine 1300CC 12 valve carburetor to 1300CC 16valve EFI engine for better performance?
I can think of a few things but there is likely more... first you will need a 16v head for the engine you are modifying. A replacement headgasket is a sure bet, as well as you'll need a new timing belt as the 16v engine likely has 2 camshafts and 2 sprockets fo be turned, where your 8v only has one.
The answer is 2 9/16 --- There are two ways to compute this fraction division. One is to divide separately : 5/2 and (1/8) divided by two, giving 2 1/2 and 1/16 and change the 1/2 to 8/16 in order to add. 2 8/16 + 1/16 = 2 9/16 --- The other way is to change the entire number to eighths: 5 1/8 = 41/8 and division by 2 yields 41/16 which can be reduced…
