car makes 158rwkw with these heads on. not sure how much of that can be attributed to the heads. car has only done 75000km's.

looking for something over $100, prefferably up around $200 but i guess the demand will dictate the price.

after removing the heads i've discovered they are quite substantially ported on both intake and exhaust. matches headers and intake although my intake is also ported. sitting side by side with the gt40p's the ports are actually a smidge bigger to look at and the exhaust ports have been squared off to match the extractors whereas the gt40p's are still a roundish shape.

due to this i'm now chasing $200 firm. these are good heads and will give a good increase over stock if you can't quite stretch to gt40p's or alloys.

they have only done 75000km's.

i can post up some pics if anyone is interested.

according to previous owner these heads were reco'd and ported at about 50000km's so that means they've only done about 25000km's.

wouldn't have a clue but yella terra quoted $22 for a set of gt40p's from them. i think they are in sydney as well (not sure). that seemed way to good to be true though. there'd be about 20kg in them and could fit both in a a3 carton so i wouldn't think it would be a huge cost.

here's some pics of them compared to gt40p's. as you can see there's not much difference in the port sizes and the vavles. valves are actually the same according to an engine place i went to today. the ports are actually a touch bigger but not sure how much work has been done internally.

the springs on the gt40p's will be getting swapped with the ones on the e7's though to suit the cam i have.

Hi Prydey, I'm sort of interested in these heads (I'm in Adelaide). Any idea who did the porting work? I'd hate to put them on and find out that they are half a mm. from coolant!

EB heads the same as EF?

Cheers, Mike

work was done by micks motorsport in sydney. the work got done at approx 52000km. i bought the car on approx 65000km and have had it a bit over a year and now has 75000km. i never had any issues with them.

eb and ef are same heads.
