    Yea mate a cdti head will fit honest

    On a serious note yes you need the head specific to your engine

    Cheers for the reply I know a ctdi head won't fit I was told a head off an astra h is the same but looking at it they have got two camshaft sensors is that the only difference

    The corsa head has Z18XER stamped on it.

    Z18XER is an Astra 1.8 engine so one of those will technically "fit".

    That said i don't think anyone can confirm if the cams, valves will be 100% the same so there may be a difference in that area and something to worry about depending if you are just swapping the bare astra header or head plus cams etc.

    For easiness sake, and not being a guinee pig you'd probably be best just sourcing a VXR head, e.g;
