2 Liter head

Post by ward00 » Sat Mar 02, 2019 10:22 pm

Just took delivery of my 2 liter short block (thanks ST3Racer) Now I need a ported/bigger valve 2 liter head to match. I have the cams and only need the head. Want the 2 liter because the engine has 10.4 compression pistons and don't want to bump it up any more than I need to with a 1.8 liter head.
Currently in Santa Cruz, Ca
75 Spider - 1.8 with IDFs running like a champ - starting performance upgrade to 2 liter
75 Sport Coupe restoration, need rear hood and plastic dash!

I would reach out to Jon Logan who has been rebuilding performance heads for some years and has an excellent reputation in Fiat circles.
https://www.facebook.com/pg/midwest124/posts/ By the way, you want an FI 2 Liter head. The carbed 2 Liter head used a different casting with provision for EGR.

I think I have a really nice one I took off my 29K mile Zagato. I'll have to rummage through the collection to be sure.

This isn’t the head I was thinking of, but it’s from a 2 liter. I have the valves and associated parts that go with it.

The FAQ section has a chart of 124/125/132 engine head casting and the possible applications. Note that some head castings can be machined differently to match two or more engine types or applications .https://www.mirafiori.com/faq/content/h ... eadid.html

the EFI zagato head is the best casting for the 2.0L that was used in the states. It is highly desirable.. Just a FYI

Is that independent of building? ie is this the best head out of the box, or the best head to use for building a high performance engine?
