Icon5 What to do with used Engine head??

hey guys...i havn't been on in a while and i need some advice from THE #1 source for prelude info i know of on the web....

so here's the deal: had to replace the head to my 01 lude instead of costly reapairs fixing individual Vtec rockers that the previous owner ground down.

so now after having no problems out of the :car: since the swap i was wondering what i should do with the old head unit of the engine.

if my terminology is incorrect i am talking about the UPPER HALF of the engine. i have the aftermarket cams the last guy put in as well as the pulleys he added too. SOooooo!!

Is there anything i can do with them aside from just throwing them into the nearest junk yard?
Can i sell if as spare parts to someone? What sort of market? and do who do i advertise this to?

Thanks for all the responses in advance....[even the morons who will blurt stupidity, god bless their retard souls]

Luv

you can sell it. people can strip it down bare and still use the head to build up with aftermarket stuff.


and yes, your terminology is correct; its the head.

Put it for sale in the marketplace. Lots of people in the market for H22 heads. Including myself.
