Do buses use the same engine tin as the Porsche 914?

top tin of a 1.7 or 1.8 porsche is the same, or close enough to be useable. the upper are different on a 2.0 - spark plug holes in a different location, and most of the outer parts are completely different.

I don't believe any of the topside 914 tin is compatible with the bus. The will all require modification. The 914 shouldn't have a switched tube coming from the heaterbox on the bus passenger's side as there is space for a round one.
