Buy it used. They go pretty cheap.

You may want to consider a dual plug head. These came stock on the newer rangers. The newer rangers also had roller rockers from the factory. Doing the dual plug conversion from what I hear isn't very hard.

hope this helps,

At first I worked on out of necesity(because I had no money)
Now I work on cars out of obsession
(and I still don't have any money)

why don't you get a pinto head and port that sucker, you'll make some power, az sells them heads for a $200 complete with the cam. Or go to turboford.com or turbotbird.com and buy a used one.

90 35th anniversary sold
88 turbo coupe 14.1 at 96mph ( almost stock)
93 mustang lx sold
73 pinto station wagon ( mustang replacement), 2.3t will go in there in the future.
86 t-bird just got it
