I know an engine builder in Kansas, Missouri who does amazing work at very competitive prices. I bet he could just find you a head down there, prepare it and send it to you. If you read this article http://www.cardomain.com/ride/269576/15 you will see pictures of his work. I can connect you up with him.



He also designs his own cams and pistons etc for racing and turbo motors and is well known in the USA for his race motors.

Try Canadian Cylinder Head Tech, They're in the Keele/Finch area.

http://www.cylinderheadtech.com/contact.htm

Also you may want to try Competition Automotive at Yonge/16th ave.

http://www.competitionautomotive.com/

Both places won't be cheap for that kinda work.

Edit: Did you blow the HG already?

no it was seeping white smoke everynow and then so i figured that it was the headgasket,,,,so i took it all apart to see that the gasket was fine but what it was was the head not to my nowledge was repaire before and i guess now wit the extra pressure on it it caused the repair area to crack again,,,,so i just bought a nice used head that i will get all the mods done to it that i need so that im not going to have to pull this off again

i live right a young and major mackenzie,,,,,have u ever had these guys do work for u ,,,r they good

thanks

I had Competition Automotive machine/re-balance my Flywheel/Clutch assy. So far so good! Don't wanna say how much I paid, It wasn't pretty
