Hey all, im puting my ef xr cylinderhead in sometime in the next couple of weeks to get ported and new springs, valves ect as part of my engine rebuild, i just want to know if anyone thinks that i should pick up another standard head to use from the wreckers and keep the ticky head??
I know they are not rare and easy to get but will a standard ticky head ever be worth anything lol??

The Tickford head might be worth something in 50 years when they're rare, but in the short term it's not worth keeping it in storage. It's easy enough to duplicate, or improve on, the changes Tickford did on the XR6 heads.
