    Engine differences

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know what the differences in engine are between the turbo'd 16v and non turbo'd series II Thema?

    They are both 1995cc so I'm guessing the block and head are identical (almost)

    Thanks!

    Re: Engine differences

    I seem to remember someone once telling me that the turbocharged cars featured sodium filled exhaust valves.

    I would also assume that the non-turbo cars have a higher compression ratio. The cam profiles are likely different too.

    Fundamentally the blocks and heads will be based on the same family of casting so there likely won't be too much difference.
