Default 99 or 2000 head

Working hard on remodeling my kitchen I totally spaced that there was no antifreeze in the race car and cracked the head. Feel like a complete idiot having to post this in public but I really need another 99 or 2000 head. Anyone got one laying around you're willing to sell?

Would you like a mazdaspeed head?

EDIT: I don't have one, but I am talking to someone about buying a mazdaspeed engine and I plan on keeping my original VVT head - so if I can sell the MS head it makes buying the motor a no brainer.

Ok, so I got the msm head. If you want to hear it running I will upload a video. It has intake still bolted up and everything. It looks to be in good condition.

It is pretty much the exact same head.

Have a '99 head, but the combustion chamber is chewed up a bit in cyl 2. Been told it is repairable. Probably never get around to it myself.

I have a 99 head, no cams on it. PM me postal so I can get a shipping estimate and see if we can make a deal.

According to OP, he already got a head. He just was wondering why a MSM head would be more desirable than a 99-00 head based on Savington's statement.
