I am having a head rebuilt right now as well. My VW shop, which has years and years and years...(well you get the picture), of machine work, has told me the same thing. He said even if he were to order me a rebuilt head specifically for a turbo, it would be the same as the NA head, they are all built to the same basic standard. hayden On Apr 5, 2005, at 8:14 PM, Shawn Wright wrote: > In speaking with Peter at Bowwow (the local VW parts place), I was told > they have supplied standard NA valves for TD applications for years > with > no problems.
