I'll trade you a '94 head I got for someone and a fancy coolant reroute for one of your '99 heads and intake.

That's it. It was a head from a running engine that I found AFTER I bought the one from Nester that UPS fukt up. If this head was trashed I would need the one from the running engine. If this head was fine I was going to let y8s have the other one for $150 to be cool but I wan't going to let him have it out from under me if I needed it. I'm sick of being thrashed on this forum. I help out doing **** like this. I don't make money. I don't get anything out of it. You can all show some general respect or go F--- yourselfs.

dude, he offered his head up for sale over a month ago. and you said you had a lead on another one for cheap back then.

when stuff sells for cheap and is a good deal IT SELLS FAST. That's why I got annoyed that nothing happened for six weeks.

I thought I was pretty easy on you in this thread. I kept all my pestering to PMs and found my own cylinder head. But from time to time people take a ribbing from everywhere at once. You'll get to your breaking point and flounce out of here and realize it's all irrelevant because you're going to build **** how you want to build **** and buy **** when you want to buy **** and NOT CARE what we say. Thanks for the coils though...

A sense of humor is one thing but when I get **** day after day it gets old. y8s didn't know what deal I had worked out for the other head. I offered it to him at what it was going to cost me. I know these heads are not cheap. I was going to relay the deal IF this head from Nester was ok. If not I would have needed it for my own build. Were still in limbo about what UPS is going to do about it. Plus I'm still waiting to hear about that other engine/head anyways. I haven't heard from that guy in weeks. It's not like I can just walk to Walmart and get it or like I'm hoarding heads in my closet. Sorry to go off about it it's just that I can only take so many 'rib shots'.

Hey, If you need some pointers on head work let me know. I did A LOT of work to the head on my 99 and it really helped. I unshrouded the combustion chambers, blended the bowls into the throat and combustion chambers, polished the valves, mild porting, etc. The motor has the power 2k. it used to have at 3K.

They charged me $800 for my 6-cylinder M3 head, for a valve job + head work. Result is +30 cfm flow (+15%), which is good for +45hp on a 6-cyl.

I then sent my cams to Dema Elgin www.elgincams.com
He will take the flow numbers from Rebello and do a custom grind. $450.

Call Dema and chat with him about what profiles would work on a VVT head.
Sounds like a good plan. Flowed head and cam to match. Cam price isn't bad.

An inexpensive way of upping rev range on that head is to use 94/95 Miata valve springs. They are a little stiffer than the 99+ valvesprings.
