Default 1.6 vvt?

HAs anyone heard of using the ZL-VE head on the B6 block for VVT?

Nope because it's unlikely that all the water jackets and chambers lone up perfectly.

Why do you think they would change the locations? One way to check is to see if they have the same part number for head gaskets from several companies.

it is a 1.5l head that fits on the 1.6l ZM\Z6 block which is newer B6 block
I'd be more worried about exhaust ports and intake ports being different

If they are different then get acustom exhaus and intake. Not like you're going to be anywhere near stock if you were to do this, right?
