XUD Cylinder Head

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by Chris Howarth, Feb 15, 2005.

  1. Does anyone know if there are any differences between the turbo and
    non-turbo 1.9l XUD cylinder heads?

    I might be facing the prospect of replacing the head on my non-turbo 1993
    306 but can only source new heads for the turbo engine.

    There is a difference in compression ratio between the two engines but that
    is handled by different pistons.
    There are definitely two types of inlet port, but I think all the 90 on were
    the same, oval to look at on the outside.
    Assuming that they are the same, then I don't think you will have a problem.
    But then there are many contributors here who are far more knowledgeable
    than I am.

  3. Chris,
    I have it on good authority (Peugeot source)that there is no
    difference at all between the turbo and non turbo heads. So I bought a
    non turbo head from ebay and I am in the process of having it done up
    just in case my turbo cylinder head decides that it is time to throw
    the towel!! Go for it!!
