no it wont work. c16xe pistons have valve cut-outs in the pistons due to the cams having a higher lift.

x14xe's dont have these cut outs in the pistons. why not just replace the stem seals and the rocker gasket? its a lot easier and cheaper.

not when the recon'd head is goin for v little money. but thanks for the advice, i figured that might be the case, just read on here they fit, c16xe cams must have a fairly high lift to interfere, higher than x14xe aftermarket ones?

well, they arent really high lift, its just that theres no cut outs in the pistons.

get a head gasket set for 50. that includes stem seals, head gasket, bolts well everything you need really. lot less hassle too.
