Hi Harvey,
You have just increased my confusion level from "above average" to critical !!
I assumed that as my car is a UK 98 (April -R plate) it needed Sti V3 or 4 heads to fit straight on without problems.

I also believe that it would be difficult to fit V5 heads as the fuel rails/injectors would be different. ???

Could you/someone please tell me exactly what I would have to change to fit V5 heads to my engine, and how "difficult/ straightforward it would be. (I have parallel fuel feeds to each bank of injectors) http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/confused.gif again

Yes v3 or v4 heads.

Assuming you have the coil on the middle of the manifold and not the pass. side.

Thanks for replying Paul.
Yes I do have the coil pack on the top/middle of the manifold. Does the V5/6 have the coil pack somewhere else ?

Yes, it's offset to the passanger side of the manifold. ie. Not in the middle http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/smile.gif

Right Dyney - I think I'm now beginning to get the picture of the coil pack on the V5/6 - its been moved ! http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

So I reckon from what Pat said in my "best cams" thread (which I have re read as I had forgotten most of what was said !) I should get V3/4 heads as the "easiest" way forward.

So anybody selling any V3/4 Sti heads ???

Edited due to poor memory, .....or did I ?
