What to do???

I am pondering on my current situation... I am about to commit to buying a head online, that I have never seen b4. And am unsure of its current condition. I would be getting the head for $250 with no valve cover and, he will throw in the vtec selonoid, and distibutor. But I called around to my local machine shops, and they said that it would cost any where from $700-$800 for a stock rebuild. I can get a BRAND NEW head from honda for around $1200. So let me know your intput. I am probably going to get the new one from honda no matter what. But I want your input!!!

Shop around some more. Get some bigger cams and upgrade the valvetrain and make the rebuild worth it. If not, then get the Honda head.

^^What he said. Even a port polish job can be a $300 exercise, so make sure you're getting a good deal so you at the very least end up as good as you had.

I am going to have the new head built... but I was told if I end up with a head that was warped, or flawed at all I could end up spending up to 2000 just for a rebuild... I just figure a new head would be better to build on!!!

Well with a little patience, you can do a good port and polish yourself. :)

It's really up to you "Blazin." Just pick the one you feel more comfortable with.
