I'm thinking of buying an aftermarket ported head for my car that
came off an 87. It also has a Blauparts cam but it is not the Blau
head they offer on their site. Anyway the Blau site says their head
will fit an 84+ engine. On Huw's site he had posted that your could
do the cheapie head upgrade by finding any 5K engine and snarfing the
later cam/head for a bolt small-on HP increase.
So, does anyone have any input on why the head may or may not fit/
work on an 82 5K motor? This head is claimed o have only 3K miles on
it from when it was ported/polished etc. and so it seems to me to be
a cheap way for me to get a top end job and few spare HP.
Any tips/advice is very much appreciated. The current owner has no clue.
