Default Feeler - 99 head ready for Belfab components

I have a '99 head (still in bag from machine shop) that was built with the belfab kit and oversized valves. I am thinking I will swap those components over to a VVT head that I am having freshened up. Is there any interest in this head(with cams) but no valves or springs? I have no idea what it would be worth, but it is ready to be assembled assuming you get valves/springs. Machine work alone on the head was $250 I believe.

Aren't the valves lapped into the head already? Doesn't seem like you would want to separate those parts considering they're fresh.

True, ddin't think about all that was involved...if that's the case, it's probably not worth messing with. I don't think I could get enough out of the existing built head to buy parts and build the the equivalent VVT head.

Spring Kit $350
Exhaust valves are $140
Intake valves are $140

That's $650 in parts alone + machine work....so I'd have to sell the head for about $900 complete. Doubt that's happening...oh well. I could turn this into a "I have an 03 VVT head for sale thread"
