One responds better to tuning & comes with slightly more power as standard....others not as good to tune & is Eco-tech....cant remember which is which though

it will fit. but you'll lose about 3bhp

C16XE head is the best one, unless you get the X16XE on ported and polished

what do you want another head for?

Cams will fit (even in the x18xe1 and z18xe engine).
Although I always thought that they were slightly different c16xe compared to x16xe ones....

Head will also fit, donot now the differences though.
Would like to know them btw!
