Default WTB (maybe): 99+ head

Might be needing a head, wondering if anyone has something I could work over and install.

Unfortunately, I don't have one. I did at one time and hope to have one for my car one day.

A friend suggested getting a protege head, since apparently they can be had for like $100, is there any truth to that - he said something about the cams, and I thought the head gasket is different, but since I could just put in the miata pieces, would that work?

If I wreck my car before you find one, then yes, I will sell you mine.

Besides that, I have no idea.

I highly recommend you start driving my direction right this minute. The odds of your wrecking where the shipping is cheap increase the further west you make it.

And thanks, I appreciate it.

Any tips on getting cheap shipping? Someone's got one in N.C. for cheap, but I've seen shipping of $180 before.

I don't know about shipping, but I've always had good luck with DHL.

I wouldn't cheap out on it too much though, I would hate to find out that something happened to it during shipping.
