Taken from Novaload

According to EPC the C and X16XE have the same partnumber for the cylinder head and also use the same valves and cams etc (interestingly they use the same cam for both inlet and exhaust)

im sure the C and X16 are supposed to have different heads so not sure whats going on there

the X16XEL is a different story, it appears to have the same valves as the C/X16XE, but the cams are the same as the X14XE, and the cylinder head is the same as the X14XE

The inlet manifolds are different on all 3 engines

interestingly the head gasket is different on the C16XE compared to the X16XE, i wonder if this is to do with the compression ratio increase from 10.5:1 to 11:1 that the C16XE was supposed to have??

thicker gasket to lower the compression, olivoil has already established this
