need opinion. valves or new head?

so i blew the valves on my car and im at a point where id like to sell it lol

but i need an opinion.

do a valve job and replace all the valves, or throw a new head on?

though i think the valve job would in the future be better but im at a tight spot financially and being out of a car is no good especially since i cant get to school for finals. but the head is good and i can get it for 200 bucks.

but what do you all suggest?


thanks

if the head is in good shape than that would be the way to go if you arent in a great financial situation. if you could afford it, i would say just to go ahead and get the valve job and some performance valves, springs, and retainers.

yeah well ive decided to speed up my build project by like 3 months and im going to go ahead and build the bottom end of the motor since were right there. the head is in good shape and im going to just leave it stock and then a little later once i get a little better cash flow get some bigger cams and upgrade the valve train.
