well i'll be the first to say, welcome to the board..:wave: sorry i don't know the answer to your question tho, i've never seen a 1600 cylinder head.. but i would tend to think the 1600 cylinder head would be smaller than the 1800...

the 1600 cylinder head is slightly smaller than the 1800. the combustion chambers are in the same relative spot, but the bolt pattern is a little closer than 1800.

but later model 1600 hatches, like 85-89 have the ea81 bellhousing, and the larger valves from the 1800.

so if your question is regarding what kind of heads to use, use heads off the 85-89 1600 hatch motors.

you will be able to tell which engine to use heads from, the bellhousing has the starter on the side, rather than straight on top.
