4.0 head conversion company

Clearwater Cylinder Head Inc... anyone have any experience with them? I could drive over there maybe next week or so and take a look around and get a feel for the place.
Clearwater C.H.I.
Does the price sound right for a re built head? Note the ports have already been welded closed for the head swap

Re: 4.0 head conversion company

I personally don't think it is necessary to close off the ports. Grab a 4.0 and 4.2 head gasket and compare them. They both have holes. I am running a 4.0 head on a 4.2 block with no problems at all. Just used the 4.0 gasket.

Re: 4.0 head conversion company

I would be interested in that. How much is the core and why dot hey want a 4.2 head for a 4.0 head? That would be my big question. I thought that the HO head was a bit newer(I'm probably wrong). Again I'd be interested in getting one that sounds like a good price to me, hell almost too good.

You know what they say if something is too good to be true.....

Just a thought, it would be nice to get one rebuilt (clean, and the ports welded up already
