Will a 94 9000 2.3l turbo aero head work on a 99 9-3 2.0l block? Any issues that would get in the way? Which cams should I use?

See attached 2.0 head with issues :confused:

I agree. The only issue you might have is that the older heads use a different size coolant temp sensor (side of the head near rad hose).

A t7 head with T5 cams is an improvement on T5 cars.

a T5 head is a T5 head. (I am not considering the 93 T4.9 cars T5)

the heads are basically the same, as mcrowley stated, the ONLY difference between a 94 9k 2.3T head and a 99 2.0T head is the coolant temp sensor. coolant temp sensor follows the head year.

Sounds encouraging! Keeping the temp/coolant sensor with the block/head. Tweek, you got a spare T7 head that your not using? Need one intake valve to replace the chipped one in the 2.3l head. Now If I could find a cheap/free 2.3 block, I could do a real upgrade or have a spare for the 9000s ;)
