96 block

This is the place to ask questions about your engine components like cams, valves, pistons? just anything that is generally "engine" specific.

96 block

Post by vielecustoms » Wed Jan 28, 2009 4:39 pm

not sure if this is the right place. is the 96 Sohc engine different from one that would be found in a 02 sxt? could I use the head or block? I am giving the 96 to my father for body parts and was thinking about keeping the block if it'd work with the 02 as a extra / project engine.

Thanks, I was thinking building the engine for turbo than swapping it in during the winter a year or two from now. the '02 only has 85K miles on it right now so not too worried about having too many problems.

yes they should be the same depending on the build date of the 96 car.....I owned one that was a very early build date and it had the steel oil pan from the 95 engines which included the older pick up tube and everything

I think it was built in April 1996 I found some build papers behind the dash with the date but I can't find em right now. (I put em somewhere so safe I can't find em :lol: )

That is the only difference.

If you dont want to use the steel pan, just swap your aluminum one from the '02 onto it. Dont forget to swap the pickup tube also.
