[Vwdiesel] NA exhaust valves for a TD head?

That was certainly true in the beginning when they were built but now only
one head is supplied for both turbo and NA.  I also don't believe that the
head has any sodium in it, only the exhaust valves.  Unfortunately over the
years as heads have been built and rebuilt, I think everything has just
gotten mixed up.  Hayden

> The non-turbo head is cast in aluminum-alloy. The Turbo has a stronger,
sodium-injected alloy. Different materials are also used for the Turbo's
valve seats, the pre-chambers and the turbo's valves made of a special metal
called Resistal and the exhaust valves are reinforced by a plasma spray
during manufacturing process.
