Headway charge £200 for porous fix and its a permanent fix. but dont get any other headwork done from them.
When I asked a couple of weeks ago V-tuning charged £130

I strongly recommend Henryk @ V-Tuning. He did mine, and was very happy with the work carried out:up:

I took my car to him, and left it with him for the day, booked into a local b&b, and he delivered the car back to me the next day:)

here is the link to v-tuning and yes that price is with it removed.

http://www.v-tuning.com/Oil and Water Problems.htm

but for that money your better off finding a coscast head, they are getting rare but also if you have one on your car its a good selling point. dont forget you got to add 40 - 60 for gaskets, and labour to remove the head. also a new cambelt would be a good idea.
