Default FS : 99 head with 54K miles on it

I have this head, ran it 2 days on track last summer before getting my other head back from the workshop...

I do have both cams and valve cover (front was cut so for NA swap only)

I'm in QC, Canada and don't know if I want to ship this...

350$ for everything.

After few PMs regarding shipping, I will look at the options. STOP sending Pms now asking :P

The box will incorporate 2" foam all around and maybe plywood under/over, will work on it next week and get you some quotes.

For shipping a head, put the old gasket under it and bolt it to a piece of plywood. Then pack it the best you can.

I shipped a head a couple months ago, wrapped it in cardboard once, twice on deck, extra on the corners, then boxed it, then boxed it again. This also worked and only required cardboard, tape and time.

Does greyhound shipping work from one country to another? That's usually the most cost effective method for large and overweight parts.
