My XA GT is August 72 build with original engine, JG66ME16499K. It had the square block (D2AE-CA) with 4 "Dot" heads. I think Donnys XA is the same engine (Sept build isnt it Donny?). The D blocks (D0AE-J) got the 4V heads. 4"Dots" have a slightly larger combustion chamber (still closed chamber). I think compression is 1/2 a point lower.
