    How to tell year of cylinder head.

    I purchased a used cylinder head off of ebay the supposidly came off of a 2007 RXP. The exhaust valves start with "72", and the cam part number is "837621". Both of these indicate a pre 2007 and the cam is for a NA engine and not a supercharged engine. Is there a part number on the head or a casting number that would indicate the year it was built? Thanks.

    621 cam is an n/a cam. They did come in the 07 gti's. Not sure about the valve though.

    I think I almost bought that head. Lucky me I guess. Look on the exhaust side of the head & you will see a circle star like mark with a 07 in the middle. That is the year the head was made.

    If it is not what the guy advertised on ebay I would return it. Not much for him to dispute. Good Luck

    I will let you know how it works out. I have contacted him and he does not want to give a refund. Now it is in the hands of the "Ebay resolution center".
