Default I got head. Finally.

So I was browsing craigslist the other day and I stumbled upon a set of FM cam gears for 130 shipped brand new. Well I happened to ask why he was selling..etc. He mentioned he was parting out his miata and had other parts..including a head. Ported, Polished, 3 angle valve job, OS valves, titanium springs, toda cams. Got the whole package for a steal. On the downside, the thermo housing broke, and the idiot packed it in packing peanuts. Oh well small price to pay.

730 shipped was my total price for the head + cam gears.

As for putting it on.. I'm waiting on my intake manifold and 70mm throttle body from BEGI.

I suppose I'll do a coolant re-route while the thermo housing is broken off.

You ask him why he was parting it out?

He got a DUI. From what I understand his pops is loaded and I guess is making him pay for his lawyer. He's got a few other items for sale, like a full FM turbo exhaust and a pierburg pump. Seems to be super flexible on pricing.
