i threw a rod and was wondering if anybody ever swapped blocks from the redtop b204 with the blacktop b205 which is in my '00 9-3.

i actually did the swap and i can't get my engine to run right it makes a wierd whistling noise under vacuum- i am unsure could just be alternator or belt. it will only run idling high with the intake pipe at the throttle body disconnected otherwise it stalls out after idling high for a few seconds. the motor tested good compression but also seems to have an excessive amount of blowby, with the pcv off it blows out oil. i did a boost leak test with no leaks at 15 pounds there was some blow by tho. it would build up pressure if i hold my finger over the pcv hole for a few seconds on the valve cover. thanks
