as some of you know i posted before my problems with my busted cylinder head. well, we got the news back today that there is a TINY crack in it, which basically makes the whole thing uselss. it also means that we need a new complete head to get the car running. so far, i think my dad and i are willing to make the financial sacrifice to accomplish this, so im shopping around for cylinder heads for the m20(b25) motor.

i know that bavauto as two, stock unassembled for $1250, and an aftermarket fully assembled for $1700. my dad and i both agree its worth getting the assembled one. but, if anyone knows any sites that sell heads for this engine, please share!

much apprectiated

I can get you a new head complete with valves, guides, springs. No cam or rocker shafts (use the ones off of the original). For $1050.00 plus shipping from NJ. Let me know if interested.
