N/A head on a Turbo engine=Bad idea or not?
#1
I got bubbles in my coolant and took of the head on my turbo xud9...had the head tested and its cracked :/ I guess the 22 psi of boost and the massive amounts of fuel eventually took its toll.

Now I can't seem to find any other used head from a turbo engine in my country...all I had found so far are from N/A engines. Can I put one from a N/A engine...everything is the same, valves, seats, camshaft, etc. I am just worried that N/A heads are somewhat weaker internally...

I have a feeling they're all the same. I don't remember anyone mentioning that they were different.

It's probably heat and age, adding lots of fuel creates heat. could have just been a small hot spot.
A moments silence please, for our brothers in the NAD-zone.

XUD heads are flat face, the combustion chamber/volume is in the piston, the main difference in the turbo engines is the bottom end.
need a part number? http://public.servicebox.peugeot.com/ and http://service.citroen.com/ will sort you out.

Thanks. Actually I decided to put on a new head...around here the difference in price wasn't too great.
