Mein Auto: 03 330i
Engine rebuild, needing head help

Hey guys I need help figuring some stuff out. I have an 81 320i with the 1.8 in it. I seized the engine due to a faulty oil pressure sender. Anyway I bought another engine a 1.8 out of what I was told was a 84 318. I started stripping the 318 engine and found out that it has grand piano style pistons. Now I just bought the block and head together but the intake manifold wasn't on it. So Idk what kind of injection it used. Mine has the L-jet injections system and I'm wondering if that intake manifold will work on the 318 head? I was also thinking about swapping heads but will the be a clearance issues with piano style pistons??? I have t taken my engine out yet so I don't know what kind of pistons it's using. Any thoughts or ideas? Just trying to get my baby running again. Thanks for the help guys!
