How much would you expect to pay without shipping for a good set of used stock SC heads?

I paid $80 for a set once. Didn't work out well though, I traded them to a guy for some ET Streets and he said the machine shop junked them. Both had cracks.

It may be worth it that if you are going to buy a set you work out with the guy some kind of warranty, or insist they be pressure tested before you buy them.

Yeah, that's what i'm worried about. Getting a bad set.

you have to understand, people never know if they are bad or not until they are cleaned and pressure tested, and a machinist starts to look at them. You could have pulled heads off a perfectly running car, but once you clean it and pressure test it, you can find a micro fracture here, a porous section over there. Yah just never know, even with your own stuff.

Ok, I did not know that. So I can pay $80-100 for a used set and it's basically a crap shoot. Thanks for the info

Yes $100 for a good set. BTW, I have a set I could be persuaded to part with.

I have two sets... one from a known good car, and one from my SC. Let me know and I'll get them out to you.
