Re: Plastic Top engine in 96 GTV
It will fit, but I am pretty sure you will need to change the inlet manifold, or disable it.
Later cars have a variable geometry intake manifold which is controlled by the ECU. The early cars ECU doesn't have the capability to control the later cars manifold.
The basic engine is the same however, apart from that the plastic cam cover and plastic top cover.
I have never disabled a variable inlet manifold so I am not sure how it is done, but I am sure someone here has.
