What makes the 16v engine different than the 8v besides the head

As the title would suggest and besides the obvious of the heads being different what would make these two engines physically different.

Intake and exhaust manifolds

Cylinder head and cams

Timing belt

Timing covers



Connecting rods



What else am I missing? What about what was modified to make it fit under the hood...

Fan shroud and motor?

As for swapping engines, has anyone actually done this? I do believe Ive read somewhere of someone building a 16v from scratch, if so was there ever a write up on the procedure?

Spelt shroud without the 'r' (see edit history)
