im sure this has been covered i have been watching the forums and have prorably missed it, i have a 96 lx with a 1.9 in it, somehow the camshaft snapped into 2 peices on me in between cylinders 2 & 3, im considering bolting on the 2.0 head but have a few questions, will the 1.9 head gasket work? Do i have to use the 2.0 intake manifold? and do i have to wire in the rpm switch to drive the car daily? i plan on installing a turbo down the road but not right now but i need to get the car repaired and the only 1.9 heads around here are all cracked. any imformation will be usefull thanks

The engine won't run right without the turbo because the compression with the 2.0 head on the 1.9 block is too low. The 1.9 and 2.0 cam shafts are the same though so you could just replace the cam.

That's not true.
It will still run & drive fine. It will just be even slower then a stock 88hp 1.9. But it will still work.
