Damn, thanks for the info. I'll add that to my list. I assume all the idlers can be used though, right? Cam and crank seals the same?

Tensioner is different, idlers are mostly the same and usually interchangable. Water pump and cam seals are the same. Crank seal same.

yes if you swap the Phase I 2.2 heads onto the Phase 2 block. but while i've done Phase I and Phase II swaps like that you need to proceed carefully due to clearance issues.

but normally - no, like capnr mentioned the belts are different.

you can use the Phase I tensioner on the Phase 2 block if you get the bracket that the tensioner bolts to - those are just attached to the block via a couple bolts. swap bracket and you can swap tensioner.

I have a few of these "kits" PM me if interested. I prefer the old style more reliable tensioner myself.

Oh you can bolt on the old tensioner bracket? I was wondering about that. I may go that route.

Not putting phase1 heads on, because this is a phase2 car. I just want it to work. Heh.
