24508132 is a series 2 head... this will not work for him..

Part number 24500363 was used for the 91-92 Model years was the same between the NA and SC'd models

Part Number 24501418 was used from 93-95 and the same for both NA and SC

It may be easier to locate a set of 93-95 heads at this point weather NA or SC'd..

Good Luck
Injector bosses are not in the S1 L67 heads? I guess I was mistaken. Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks for the help, Don!
No Problem...

Thats correct, the injector bosses are in the lower intake manifols as the M62 Blower was skinnier... So both engines used the same heads..

If you are just going to replace the one head, I reccomend a 91-92 if you can find one

If you were going to do both heads, 93-95 Vin 1 or Vin L would be a better bet

Don is saying that a 91-92 NA or SC will work in your application... 93-95 NA or SC heads if you want to replace BOTH heads.

as a recommendation, i would replace both heads because of the updated valve train...you already have one off....might as well do both....and yes you can use heads off either a NA or an SC motor
