Should the head be from a turbo engine or are there differences between NA head and turbo head? Valves? Camsaft? And what about the camsaft cover, do I need to use one from the 2.3L. There might be trobles in yearly inspections whith the cover stating 2.3L. I'm not after extreme power increase despite the erroneous statement of "maximum power" in my first message. Because there was no response about the 2.0L 16V turbo head evolution between years -84 and -93 I must assume that the head remained same that period. Thanks O_P
