N/A Head on The 2.0T

Hey there,
im pretty sure i burnt or bent a valve, and i have a 2.3l N/A head sitting around i can use

I've heard that these heads are quite the improvement from the 2.0 head, which i can see it being a more aggressive head being from a n/a motor

can someone give me some info in regards to this head and also tell me what would need to be done to put the head on, any modifications required

is this a good idea, or bad???!?!?!


I dont wanna make it seem like i know what im talking about here, im only basing this on what i've heard others say, although it does seem to make sense ... i would jsut like to get my car running again soon .... and if the 2.3l head is better ill be sure to use it

thanks!!!!!!

ok .... thanks castor troy ... from what ive read about differences between sodium filled and non-sodium filled is that when the valves heats up the sodium will blow up from humidity .... and when they blow the pistons usually pop too ... but they are beneficial to transfer some of the heat from the head

I think you are confusing the 2.3 head with the T7 head.

I would find a T7 head.

I'm going to replace the valve
This is my daily driver so I need to get it running ASAP
I have a hear from a na 2.3 as a spare sitting around
I'm just wondering if anyone has done this and if it will work
I will replace the valve and switch heads back soon but I need to get my car on the road and driveable soon
