I’m pretty sure the heads are all the same. Years ago I saw a post of someone showing different valves in the 83. I believe they were flat rather than dished. Looking at the parts fiche, they do call for different part numbers for the valves. I also seem to recall a slight boost in compression ratio in 83’s. All that said, and I can’t swear to it, but I doubt anyone could tell the difference.

Ok thank you, that's what I was wondering about is the valves.
