NB engine changes.


New member
I just purchased an early NB, (Sep ‘98 ) and have to replace the head due to extreme over heat that warped the head. The replacement head I purchased from a dismantler came from a slightly later NB ( not VVTI) and to my dismay the inlet manifold attachment point has been moved slightly and the inlet ports don’t line up. If I get the inlet manifold from the donor engine, will all the electrical leads line up ?
