    Default xu10 engine numbers question

    does anyone know if the xu10 engine numbers on later model 306 cars (say about 1998 onwards) correspond with the last part of the vin?

    reason being, i have a few xu10 donor cars lined up but the gti6 which im looking at has a different engine number to the last part of the vin? is this normal? on my 205 cars all the engine numbers are the end part of the vin.

    it has the metal cam cover, definatley gti6 inlet and exhaust but what other ways can i verify its identity.

    im told there is a blue cam sensor in the head and that it should have rs cast on it also? i dont mind if its had an engine swap, but dont want to pay gti6 money for a xsi motor

    i guess i just need a way to verify its definatley xu10j4rs. what things should i look for?

    I think J4rs is written on the block at the rear near the water distribution block.
    J4
    RS

    Like above IIRC.

    A blue cam position sensor near the inlet pulley. The XU10J4R doesn't have one.
