N/A for turbo head swap

Postby newpup » Tue Nov 11, 2014 5:51 pm

I seem to remember a discussion regarding replacing the head on a turbo C223 with a N/A C223 head. The heads are different (maybe just the valves?), but will it work long term? My Trooper may be needing a valve job and I am willing to bet the head is cracked. I have an extra N/A head and would rather use it than spend time and money finding a turbo head. Thoughts?
