I went to Kia to get the paintcode for my girlfriends silver 05 Rio.

Guy told me it was silver and I just started laughing at him.

Ok so, you can get a set of 40p's for $500 at wrecker "A", WHO KNOWS whats us types buy these things for.

OR

u can go to wrecker "B" WHO classifys all falcons as taxis, and will give em too ya for $200- both same cond....

what would you do go-getta?
how many ks have the heads done,are the valve guides worn and going to suck oil,the oil seals ok or shot and the best-valve seats ok.are you going to strip them and check,lap valves and seats,replace oil seals and check spring pressures,so the heads are almost as new.weak springs the car wont rev----only 1,any more is a nightmare.skim the faces and crack test,do you plan to port or port match.dont forget as gogetter said ,labour and gaskets.plan it well as it may BITE. my heads have 305k on them,i plan to use new heads and reco the old ones,my mates workshop,to do them costs more than 400 and i have new valves to fit,cost 260-4 years ago,last of the run. do your maths,nuff said



this is good advice ....you,d have to be crazy not crack testing and stripping and checkin as Hans says....then your up to the same price as the Yella Terra ones

i know which i,d rather have brand new or 2nd hand!!

wreckers who don't know what they are selling are few and far between, esp when it comes to au v8 stuff.
