Can anyone tell me what the most I should pay for a used head of a 280zxt? Not rebuilt, just in good condition. Can I tell if the head is good by looking at its condition? Also how much should a rebuild cost, if I bring the head to them, and install it myself?

IUsed heads run $50 - $150 from the U-Pull it yards here in Central Fla. They don't charge you extra for turbo, but turbos are harder to find. It's really hard to tell the condition of a head, or whether is is cracked or warped without looking at it. However, if you pay only $50, and then take it to the re-builder/machinist, they will check it out before spending the time and dollars to rebuild it. Costs to have a head re-built start at about $200 and go on up to over a thousand depending on what parts, cam, rockers, springs you have put in. Best to find a couple of machinsts in you area experienced with Z heads, and get some different quotes.
