    hey, my mates dad was gonna get rid of a spare engine he had lying round under his shed (s1 90 vn motor, 200,000km on the clock)

    my dad cracked the shits and didnt want me to try and lug the engine in the backyard so i just stripped it for parts i want/need

    off the engine i was able to get

    the heads
    rockers
    pushrods
    inletmanifold
    rockercovers
    injectors
    fuel rails with filter

    and all the bolts n crap that go with the upper half of the engine


    thinking of a port polish and maybe a reco with the head as it looks in good condition and has lowish k's

    heh the total cost was $0

    what should i do? port the heads and reco them? or slap them straight on now

    Hey, nice score :)

    If you think you want to have a shot at porting and polishing, there's no better reason to do it than free heads :D It's not every day stuff like that lands in your lap!
