Default 99-00 4W Cylinder Head, Cheap, For Parts

**this is not the same head I listed last week**
This is a 99 or 00 1.8 head. I'm not looking at it right now, but I recall that at least 1 cam bearing is scored. It probably would be possible to weld in to fill the damage, then have the head line bored. I have no idea what that would cost, but it's probably expensive, and may not be worthwhile.

However, this thing has a full valvetrain including the solid lifters in it (NO CAMS). You want it for parts, or to fix it, or to cut it up, or for a paperweight

$100 + freight OBO

Just had a look at it again. It's in much better shape than I thought. Has cam bearing damage on the 2 closest to the rear bearings on the exhaust side. Can get pics this weekend.

there are no cams, and you'll already have the solid lifters

Think it could be welded and fixed? I'd do a DIY P&P and have Elgin flow it and re-grind my cams to match.

Shoot me some photos, Ben, and I'll shoot them over to Elgin and see what they say.

Doin that there too. I have a whole pile of parts heading down to the shop where the mad scientist resides: short block, manifolds, BP4W to cut up. The shop is already full of B series Honda motors. This particular shop does one-off hybrid Honda motors with internals from all over the place, offset pin welded cranks, you name it. We're putting our idease together to see whats possible.

Me too. Who knows what we'll find. My half baked ideas and Joe's Jedi engine knowledge might come up with a better option than the current status quo. I want something for the masses. No uber trick high dollar dyno queen. I envision an affordable stroker crate motor.

Big obstacles to power in the B series Mazda engines: rod ratio, ports that are too small area and at shallow angles.

Joe wants to know just how much he can open up the heads. Then we'll know what we would need to do for a new manifold to match the open ports. Big ports need high revs though, and that doesn't fit well with the rod ratio. argh
