Default engine/heads sources in town?

Hi all,

My 2002 2.5rs has a leaky head gasket at 146k. Is there any place in town to get longblocks or just heads for an EJ251?

I have been debating about getting a new car, but I just don't want the car payment.

Thanks,
RawCode

I got my heads from a guy in wasilla. 907-229-9832. His name is Dewayne. I think he closes at 5 so call before then.

Nothing really, just would want to swap them out with cleaned and prepped bits. If they are coming off, why not?

Well if your not in to much of a time crunch, send them out to a machine shop and have them tear them apart, replace the valves/springs and what not clean em and re-assemble. might cost you a bit. I plan on having that done this summer to my car when I can down it and ride the motorcycle. Would be cheaper then buying new.

Yeah I have time for now. The head gaskets are just leaking, so it isn't too bad yet.
