WTF happened to the price of our cylander heads?! I bought one about 9 months ago for 150$ from parts.com. I checked the page again and now they list for almost 700$! the monkey head is 250, why is ours so much more expensive? They need to quit playin, this has to be a joke.

NOPE, same thing happened to me. I alays saw the price as $150 for a bare head was like sweet! I finally go to order a while back and it was $700 or $800. My dealer said ford doesn't offer the bare head anymore, it only comes complete and fully assembled with the cam and everything.


I ended up finding one cheap in canada with low miles off www.car-part.com. Ford really screwed us.

yeah, I was lookin and it used to be you could order a bare head or a loaded one. I didnt know the 700$ one was pre-loaded. why? just cause I might need a new head dosent mean I need a new cam and valvetrain. I was gonna buy a new head, deck it for 10:1 and load it with an EFP cam. see which of the 2 heads I like better. damn, gonna have to get a slightly used one.

damn... They probably raised the price after they saw that some guy from "the focal thing on the net" showed some interest into buying that cheap head and modding it!!

I already saw on ebay new crated spi engine with 350$ buy it now!!

yeah, I was telling my friend that I might as well buy a whole engine and just violate it for parts. I can get a whole engine for less than the cost of the head! plus I need 2 heads. one for the EFP cam and 10:1, and another for 8:1 and turbo.

part of it may be that SPI production's gonna stop entirely soonish as Zetec will become the base engine in 2005 i believe.
