does a g13b head fit on a g16a block i have been told yes and also the bell housing lines up aswell, if this is possible is this the same as me taking my original block to be bored or is the stroke different? and injectors aswell what are people using in there turbo conversions? i've read about alot of people using all kinds but what have people found to work best?

yes the head fits, buts the g16 bottom end is weaker it wont rev as high as g13. g16 has a longer stroke

well the block itself is stronger, since it's a closed end one, but the internals are weaker, though i have a friend who rebuilt the block with original parts, and it's running fine, he revs it 7k+ and its been fine for almost 2 years now, it's NA though, he uses it for slaloms mostly

Hi,

G16 has so called weak crankshaft. They are hollow unlike G13B which is forged.
If you put G13B head onto G16, it will not flow as much air as 1.6 needs.
You can buy SOHC 16v head from Baleno which flows better but you will not get aftermarket cams readily available. You can buy them only from Canada. Teamswift's Mike aka Suprf1y.

Hi,

I have a feeling it is.
If you are fitting DOHC head, you will need to carry out P+P to cope with air flow.
If you going this far, why not fit D15/16 Honda crankshaft to G16 engine?
This mods is carried out in US or G15 then turbo charge it.
