I remember Richie, I believe, saying that the later generation turbo heads i.e. genIII? ( which had improvements to keep the from cracking )

- could be identitifed by some external marking.

Richie did you say this or does anyone know how I can check my latest turbo wagon's heads to see if they are gen IIIs

'Preciate any help

I really do not know what they did to make them better, I know they are less likely to crack at the ports. Here is how you can tell them apart. The cars made in 84-early 85(read 85's) had a stamp on the bottom that said ea82. The ones in 86 and part of 87 had ea82 and a line under it. The ones that are the best have ea82 and it is circled by a box. You should be able to see them by lying under a vehicle. Since your new car is an 87 (Correct?) I know it going to have either the line or the box. Both are good heads. The only ones to stay away from are the gen1 heads.

This info belongs in the archives for other turbo owners to have access to.

I think it should probably be archived now =)

I'll do it by the end of the day if you don't beat me to it (have too much work to do right now).
