I Hagar is 100 % in agreement with Gary Bangs. --- WHY ? --experience , thats why.
My Bentley VRD4 ------ list two types of gaskets. ----1977 to 1980 ---- and 1981 and on..
SO ? for 1.5 L NA ? I order 5 notches regardless of piston above block measurements.
For 1.6L NA and Turbo ? I order 3 notches. ---regardless.
Study the chart on page 24 and you will see that VW uses the thame thickness
max for both engines.
The secret is to know that the 1.5 L has a shorter stroke . ERGO the 1.6L has not
the same need for a super thin gasket. 1.3 mm . ----the longer stroke of the 1.6L
gives more compression. ----- The bore is the same.
Important : 1.6L heads are available ---1.5L heads are made of unobtanium.
Can a 1.6L head be used on your 1.5L to keep it going ?
YES indeed --- BUT do not expect a stealership to put it on.. It is a DIY job.
PS : Its all in your HEAD.
