Re: 782 chinese head

Here's one person's thoughts on them. My new 782 head VS. My original 782 head

I think the main thing is to make sure it has turbo spec exhaust valves in it. If your car isnt turbo, then it should be pretty good.

Re: 782 chinese head

i would not waste one red cent on those chinese heads. they all have major issues with core shift, ports are smaller, dont line up to the intake exhaust manifolds, and are just plain junk. remember they use these heads on forkifts, not turbo engines.

just get ahold of a real 782 head off a turbo car, spend the $250-$300 having it gone through at a reputable machine shop. you will save yourself a lot of headaches and $$$ over trying to make a crap head work on your car.

Re: 782 chinese head

Well if his car is a 2.5 N/A, I don't think there'd be a problem with the Chinese head.

Only thing is, where I live at least, its much easier to go down to pull a part and pull a full 782 head for less than $40.00 off of any old EEK. If I had an N/A car, I would definitely do just that. I would even consider it for my CS, but I'd buy just the stripped head for even cheaper.
