Default VVT Head - 160,000 miles

I have a VVT head that came off a running engine. Carbon buildup isn't too terrible. No obviously bent valves. Both cams rotate and no significant wear is visible on the lobes. I did not do a leakage test. Comes with
- Valves & springs
- Cams
- Valve cover
- oil feed line
- head bolts
- Intake

Head is assembled.
Pictures will be posted tomorrow

$350+ shipping. I'll pack it for free :-)

Finally the pictures I promised. I can't see any damage. Whoever owned this engine before was not big on maintenance though. Check out the spark plugs and the buildup of crud on the valve cover.

Do you have the oil feed line from the back of the valve cover to the engine block? I would be interested in that.

I do, but without that, nobody would want to buy the head. So I'm not splitting the combo up.
