My 16v bottom end in the 96 Tracker has a bunch of scoring so I'm probably going to source a v6 to swap in for more powa.
Looking at getting $350+ shipping.
I paid $100 for the head from junkyard, I've got ~4rs labor in it for PnP work, the new valve seals, and $214.xx for machine work.
I'll get pictures of the head as it sits shortly.
I port matched the intake runners to the gasket and the exhaust side to 1mm undersize of the gasket. You'll need a header for best performance cause the exhaust runners are larger then the stock cast exhaust manifold flange/runners. All bowls were blended.
The head has just over 4k miles on it since machine work which was performed at UCF Machine Shop in Carlisle PA. Work performed was mill .015" off to bump compression slightly, full valve job, replaced 1 valve, and tanked/cleaned.
I put new valve seals on during reassembly. The head will come with all of it's "internals".
