Hi. Just had rebuild on a gen 1 3sgte for my st165. has lost oil pressure and stuffed the bottom end. i need an engine asap for an event i have the car entered in.

Is it pretty much a straight swap from a st185 to the st165.

Are the heads interchangable as i have good cams and new valve job in the gen 1 head??

Don't quote me but I think you might run into a problem with the Gen 1 cams in a Gen 2 gead, thats what I seem to recall being told at least.
