where to buy new head gaskets?

turns out all the problem was a burnt out head gasket.

since there was coolant mixing with oil every where around,steam coming out of the exhaust and from the air breather hose.

at all cases where can i get a head changing kit?
even thouhg it won't do a diffrence i'll get my heads ported while there off.

1 410 655 2000. Ask for parts, then Randy. Tell him I sent you.

Pick up some ARP headstuds too.

BTW, why wouldn't porting "do a difference?"

Good luck

There is plenty of potential in the early heads, that with a set of 2k cams should give you a good HP gain. I have a set being done by Shannon aka "The Game". It will not produce the same amount as the P&P PI heads but will come very close to the stock PI heads which is still worth while. Maybe Shannon will impart some tips to your head porter cause he is in Turkey and not really a threat to his business.

has the head change kit for $105 + shipping one of the best prices I have found so far.

Good luck, Dwayne

FYI, Boss96 had a set of p&p 96/98 heads and was running very good #'s with a blower combo. With porting, there is no reason why those heads can't produce #'s like stock 99 heads I wouldn't think. But then again, port a set of 99's and ..... well you know, you'll have even more.

If funds are tight, port the heads and see what you gain.

Good luck,
Tim
