Default Looking for built cyl head.

Hey, I live in the Keys...the mechanics suck...and high performance is considered a sticker. So im looking to source a fully built cyl head so I can just bolt it on in place of a new one instead of having some idiot here trying to put one together.
thanks in advance.

head work is remarkably complex. you make no mention of your car, any modifications it may have, what engine it has, your goals, your future mods, etc.

Be sensible, and fill in the blanks, eh?

I did not mention that no, All I wanted was to find a reputable person to build a head for me..BEACAUSE... I don't trust people around here with thousands of dollars in parts. (I have a annoying clutch scream beacause of that)

<edit>
Thank you for politely showing me the error of my ways. I have nothing but respect for the members and moderators of this forum.
</edit>
All BS aside here are my plans/current mods.

Mods:
ACT Stage 3 Clutch
Toda Racing 7lb Flywheel
Koyo 2 row
MagnaFlow Exhaust
Ghetto intake
Hardtopped.

Plans:
IdependantThrottle bodies
Rx-7 Driveline
Tein or Stance coil overs
polybushings all the way around
Im going to test and tune with different antisway bars to fit my driving style.
Id like to build the car for high comp, fast reving, high rpm. Im building the car for auto cross racing, and eventually track racing.

As I said before.....anyone know anyone, or any company that can supply a built head that can take a ton of abuse?

Flyin' Miata, despite seemingly high prices, do killer custom heads. They'll work with you to determine that you need, and can do/source it all, so long as your wallet allows.

PS: I didn't get any sort of negative vibe from what Ben typed. Hmm. Maybe I'm internet-deaf.

Don't forget your manners.

I took from the wording of your title and post that you were looking for a prebuilt head, possibly a used take-off. Such things are hard to find, and if you were to find one on this forum, most assuredly it would have been built with a turbo in mind.

$500 in pistons and a twist of the boost controller will take you further than $500 in head work.

Dude, you are coming off like a complete d-bag. He only suggested that you tell us more of what you are looking to do so we can guide you appropriately. You took his comment way out of context.

What you put in your first post "Be sensible, and fill in the blanks, eh?" Well, your post would have done just fine without that shot. Im all about fun and games and friendly crap talking....but lets be honest....I don't know you, you don't know me....you atleast have to buy me dinner before you start talking **** hommie....See there I go with that ****.

Anyways, what do you say we clear the air? Id love to be a part of a active Miata forum with people that know what they are talking about. However, when I feel as if I have disrespected....you will know it. Id love to handle this in p.m. but im such a n00b I don't have the correct postcount. If you feel im ban-able and not a potential asset to this forum...take your action. Respect earns respect Ben.
god you're a ***. Don't spread your gay aids on this board.

Now that I look at it, your right....I did take it out of context. I read a post on here about "becarefull about what you say"....yadda yadda yadda. Ive delt with dick head mods and people that love to use power to feel important. I figured he was that dude when my post was edited. Guess I saw what I thought was a smart *** low blow and took it like that. Anyways, my bad everyone. Thanks for NOT being ******** twards me because of this, and thank you for the suggestions. -Reis

We sort of initiate people around here it seems. Just blow off the insults that people say until you get like 100 posts or even more. Hopefully, by then you will realize its just part of the humor around here and come back with something equally offensive and ... well funny (the most important part).
