Will it fit the alloy XU9 block from the 1.9 8v or just the iron blocked stuff?
If I'm not mistaken the XU9JA (8v) and XU9J4 (Mi16 1.9) blocks are pretty much identical, bar some webs and stuff. The liners are more chunky but dimensionally they are the same.
IIRC as the XU9J4 crank fits the S16 (XU10) iron block then I'm basically saying AFAIK the crank will fit either, it's just made of a different, stronger material and has a 4mm longer throw than the XU9 and 6mm longer than the XU10 crank.
I'm 98.6676% sure that's correct. What you need to match and watch though is rods and pistons.
People are still playing around with all kinds of combinations on here, even with slight mods as they are all fairly similar it seems.
