I have a '88 EA82 N/A SPFI, I got a complete set of engine gaskets and rings for it. I also just bought a '88 EA82 turbo. Will the gaskets and rings interchange between the two, so I can re-ring and re-seal the turbo and ash-can the N/A, or do I need different gaskets? I have been trying to figure this out via various parts supplier web sites, but haven't met success yet, they are too confused.

i know the pistons are different, are you sure the rings are the same?

Yeah, the pistons are different, lower compression, but I can't find any resource with any good info on whether my NA rings are the same. I am pretty sure they are the same size (thickness), but they may be another material to handle the higher heat/pressure.

The rings are the same. Same rings for EA-81 too. Some of the gaskets are different though, specifically the intake manifold and head gaskets.

If you got a gasket kit, it probably has all the gaskets for carbed, SPFI, MPFI and turbo engines.

Yeah, the gasket set looks like it has several intake gaskets, so I think I am set. (no pun intended) Thanks for the info, I am sure looking forward to some turbo-powered acceleration! :rolleyes:
