I am looking for a 944 head maybe a turbo head upgrade or a p&p head, as my timing belt broke and destroyed my valves the other day. or if anyone knows how or where to get a good port and polish for cheap. also whats the best way to port and polish the intake? Thanks for the help!!! also whats the best valve springs to use and where do i get them? lindsey racing does a nice job but theyre insanely expensive aka i dont have 4000 to spend on head work!! thanks

I just bought one with some big buck springs and retainers.The lifters removed looked new.I'm taking it to the machine shop Monday to have it checked.

NA springs can be found here or LR/Paragon. NA springs are double the price of 951 springs! Some of us are using Turbo springs for this reason. They work and are just a tad stiffer than NA.

P/P is another animal. Cost goes up due to the labor and flow testing, to get it correct that is. Polishing the intake ia very hard thing to do internally but match porting is fairly EZ, but it takes more time and money to get it right as well.

Porsche Crest 944 head

The head was from a well prepared 944 race car.The valves appear almost new.Springs and retainers as well.I want to check the plane,guides and check for cracks.Since I bought it used I have to be sure.It has some really nice parts.It's entirely too much work to install a bad head.I also have other bare heads for sale.
