Good day,

I managed to get my hands on two m18a import motors, and while busy cleaning them up I noticed that their tappet covers were slightly different, this lead to me finding that the two heads had different part numbers.

The one was:
  • S-1
  • Other
  • S-2

See images attached.

I would like to know if anyone knows what the difference is? I can't seem to find anything on the net?

Not much known about the m18's in the UK
only member in the UK is Riccy with one fitted
Are both engines identical or is one vvt/none vvt

Interesting find there! Where are they imported from?

My M18 has the S2 mark and is VVT (has a bulge on the front of the LHS rocker cover around the timing chain). I have no idea what the S2 mark means though.

Thanks for your responses, yes they are both vvt versions.

I have asked some people here in SA who has done the conversion and theirs say S-1.

I am assuming then that it's just a newer version of motor? No power or performance increases?
