i got reman head with the better seats, and a used short block.

with gaskets other stuff it came to $900 no labor in that figure.. as i did the work.

now i have two more to fix one thats toast like the first one, and another thats still running..190K makes me want to know if theres a way to tell if its the original head..

i stay with the spi's for there better economy.
with the manual in a 4 door sedan 40/45 mpg is normal for me..
i did 50 mpg with a tale wind one time 42 coming back in to the wind.
