Guys,

Anyone interested in low mileage PI heads for about 200 PLUS shipping? I can get about four sets and all are in good condition. I should have pics by next week. I dont have a mod motor, so I am just trying to offload these to buy parts for my SC!

These are complete heads with valves and cam..

Hey, I just checked and I cant sell them at 200.00 shipped.. I didnt know how heavy these heads are. How about 200.00 + shipping.

This does include a pair.

Depends on how much shipping might end up being.

Yea, shipping on these things are up there. I might be willing to split shipping with the buyer, but not totally pay for shipping. How much do these heads normally go for? i've seen then from 800 to 250 on ebay.

A guy I bought a few parts from earlier this year offered me a set off an 04 Explorer for $250 + shipping.

to ship a set of fully built heads costs around 100 bucks and then by the time you get them the shipper will have fubared them so bad they'll need to be rebuilt.

yaeah heads are not cheap to ship at all think about how much deos each head weigh then x2 and that ends up being quite a bit of weight to move around.

Well, I guess the headswap idea gets thrown back on the shelf for now. If I ever do buy a pair I think I'll relegate myself to local pickups or salvage yards.

Shipping from Cali to us is expensive. On the other hand if the shipping is that big of an issue you don't want to take on this project ever. The head gaskets alone are almost $100,then you have to buy new bolts or studs, a PI intake,Timing chains and guides are probably wasted. Gotta put the mustang tube on that is almost $100, plus a nipple that is $10 and you better put a new waterpump on. There goes another $65 plus at least $20 for coolant.

On a side note I thought the minimum post for selling stuff was $50.
