?

To my best knowledge, the DX was neither a citi nor a carb engine, but the Mk1 GTi (1.8 K-Jet).

I have a 1800 carb motor blew the head gasket on my 2L head I had previously so long story short I ended up with this Head which was said to be a 2L so I recently serviced the car and found that the valve stem seals I had bought were too big for the Head so I bought valves for a 1800 head they were also too big so now I'm stuck with this mystery head. But I must point out that it has a Ghrrr sound to it sounds so nice was hoping it could at least be from a 1.6i velocity. Cant have a 1.3 head on my 1800 😥 what do you guys think? Panic mechanic?

Ugh man old age suck. Got to stop relying on memory. Ok I have no idea what it is then. Simoly measure the valve sizes or post a pic of the combustion chamber.
