Hey I got a quick question out there for all you EA82 Guru's, Can I take a MPFI head, and put on the oil passage lines and use it with a turbo with little effort? What all is needed to change over, or am I going to have to drill holes in it or something? The junkyards here seem to have quite a few MPFI engines at the moment, and all the turbo's are crapped out. I figure the mpfi heads probably have had less abuse as well

Thanks everyone!

Yep, the casting is the same.
First priority is to put turbo exhaust valves in it!

Then depending on which side you need, complete the conversion. If you have them (MPFI & Turbo) side by side, you should be able to see what needs to be done.

Thanks Emily... just curious, why would I want to change the exhaust valve? What is different about it? I think I have a pile of them lying around here somewhere anyway from previous engines..

Anyone else have any input?

I don't remember the specs from the FSM, but the turbo exhaust valves are thicker in order to better handle the higher temperatures of the turbo motor.
