    It doesn’t exist due to the VVT location in the head

    Even if you delete the VVT the head shape differs so no one makes one, trust me I looked as I have an ST in the bay

    Understand. Or different head, or will do it myself. It will be difficult, but it is a challenge :-)

    If you do it yourself you definitely have a market for selling them on based on the amount of people with ST170s installed in their Mk2s

    It is not a problem to draw it in CAD, but today I spent 2 hours on the phone, calling companies, who can to do it... The problem is to push the price around 100,- they need to make at least 500pcs... And market is here for about 50 maybe... :-)

    You are losing a lot of potential custom if you only make one with no VVT. Id be interested in one with VVT if the price was right.

    Your loss. Youd have had a lot of people interested for the VVT version.
