Default BUILT VVT HEAD (never used)

This head was built by Precision Power

Built VVt Head.
1mm oversized valves $300
Shim under bucket lifters $360
56lb valve springs $360
Titanium retainers and seats
Supertech seals $12
New OEM valve guides $100
Labor was around $800
Original cost of the head was $350
New Misc OE parts $250

Above costs are what I have into it. $2532



I also have a lot of the parts if you were wanting to convert your non VVT 1.8 to a VVT including VVT engine harness. Also, the elbow at the back of the head was taken out so you can install a plug (was for the oil cooler at the filter, but I did away with it). Also has the block off plate for the front water neck for the reroute.



$1650 + shipping

Port work? I'm guessing some since it has the +1mm valves.

I would be interested in the VVT engine harness. How much shipped to 85008?

Sorry, no paperwork.

The last head I shipped, I built a wood box. I put the head in 2 thick trash bags, and filled all the void space with expanding foam.

Makes it almost impossible to damage.

two pictures aren't loading for me, so I apologize if they show the answer to my questions. I would be converting to vvt, is everything needed included in this offering? Valve cover, solenoid, oil lines, cams? Pretty interested.

Thank you.
