: For Sale: 1978 Saab 99 Cylinder Head

13th April 2009, 06:53 PM
I have a cylinder head off a '78 99 That I was going to use on another 99 project but decided to put a 16 Valve in place of the B motor, So I have the cylinder head for sale, It's got new Exhaust Valves and is in good shape. Comes with The Camshaft and lifters, Looking for $225 OBO.
Thanks, Chip

Did you actually put a 16 valve 900 engine in your 99? If so, was that a really difficult job? How much modification had to be done to make it fit? Thanks

It's not totally straightforward but it is possible, you have to modify the firewall a little to accommodate the engine and the front motor mount as well. The engine is in the car and all hooked up except for a little more wiring and some modification to the shift linkage because I put a 5 speed in with it as well. Someday when I get the rest of the project done a Turbo will go on it but that's a ways down the road.
