not sure if the group buy is on still you would have to ask ArticMonkey on vx220.org the engines come from http://www.neobrothers.co.uk/comple...p-3637.html?osCsid=gtcn61hhvnhqeumg7b241p5h45

Looks like your gonna do a propper job on that, what difference are you expecting from porting the head BHP wise??
no idea but its gonna be more that it with the way they are there like half the size of the inlet ports lol

ordered my new engine today.:)
got nowt else to do lol
did you get a good deal ?
starter = £20
new gm tensioner = £25

the Saab thermostat housing doesn't fit onto the F23 gearbox, so just remove the new thermostat and the oblong seal from the side. These can then be used on a z22se thermostat housing.

Oil jet is just a dodgy bolt, rather than something special ;)

You need an extra oilway blank (where the turbo oil feed came from) and the cylinder head also requires a blank for the removed Saab coolant temp sensor, you can use the z22se water pump drain plug (y)

The turbo oil return requires a blanking plug, either a core plug or make one in a lathe from alloy.

The 10 large head bolts are scrap, but the head gasket should be okay

thanks @vocky
you answered some of the questions i was going to pm you about lol
was looking at the turbo drain im not at work at the moment so cant get one made up but will when i go back
found the extra hole on the head when i took the air bleed pipe off :) something i just need to get sorted as i go lol
i was going to bin the bolts and fit arp studs there only £88
can the oil cooler still be piped in with the z22se stat housing ?

I am currently opening up the exhaust ports on two heads, I will take some pictures as you need to remove quite a bit more material :D
i found some pics but they're way opened up
i would still like to see yours so i know not to take to much out :)

apart from the gasket shape (keep yours to the z22se exhaust gasket shape) those pictures are very good to use as a guide, but without making a new exhaust manifold flange it's pointless making the ends more square.

still need to work on the right side and do the valve end

@vocky working from your pic ive not gone that big on the hole its about 1-1.5 mm bigger than the z22se gasket
