That is what I am asking


your local shop should be able to advise you on a local refurbishing on heads, expect to pay around $350, if you ask the shop to carry out the work expect to pay $350 on top of that, if you do it yourself, remember you can't fit a head without a hat!


If you have the Northstar V8 this is a very big job! The engine and transmission both have to be removed through the bottom of the car! The heads themselves won't come out the top either! You're looking at upwards of $3500 to do this job! In addition the block will need to be repaired. The head bolts pull out of the block and strip the bolt holes. Personally, on a 17 year old car, I don't think it's worth fixing! HTH. -Jim
