I had my 2002 WRX (109,000 miles) in the shop to have a head gasket replacement and was told that there are cracks in both cylinder heads. There doesn't appear to be any coolant leaking at this point. The options I've been given:
1. Replaced both with Subaru heads ($1000 each plus labor).
2. Replace the entire engine.
3. Use the existing heads and pray.
I've done some research and have found places that will refurbish heads, but I haven't found any info about the reliability of the companies.
Any suggestions of other options or solid companies that reburbish head or provide new heads at a reasonable cost?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Where are the heads cracked at? The good thing about Alum heads are you can weld them. Ask to see where they are cracked at as well. Look around for some used head here is a website, give them a call and they might have some bare heads they can see ya.
