I've tried the search function and can't find the answer I'm looking for so apologies if this has already been brought up.

Basically i have a 306 s16 lump which is going in my 205, I just wondered if the GTI-6 head would bolt straight onto the s16 block?

Thanks,

Chris

yup :D essentially the same block and crank, with different rods and pistons, you may end up with a slightly low compression ratio with the differing combustion chamber volumes and deck height-dish/dome volume of the pistons.

Thanks for the fast reply, Would you say i'd be better off sticking to an s16 head then?

Putting the GTi6 head onto the S16 block will increase compression a little bit, approx from 10.4 -> 10.8.
About 3cc difference in chamer size.
