are all 1.6 16v cylinder heads the same, why i ask is , ive been given a corsa sri but its a 1.6 16v when i thought they was 1.4 16 v. it has a private plate on but told its a r or s reg, i havent collected it yet to find out for sure but the main thing is that the cam belt snaped and i got hold of a gsi engine 1.6 16v , do u think the heads will be the same

greatfull for any help

If it's on an R or S reg then it will more likely be a Sport. The SRi's were only 1.4 and came in both 8v and 16v forms but were pre 1997.

If it's on a P plate it's quite possible that it is an SRi. But it won't be a 1.6, unless it's had the engine changed as you say.

looks like its had a conversion, tell tell signs of an sri are the badges on the side, 3 spoke alloys, post 97 bumpers.

Are you sure its a 1.6 16v btw, because they do look similar to the 1.4 16v engines
