Do you have the engine opened up, pictures of the damage would be appreciated, and helpful for estimating repair cost.

If the head is damaged, and you can't do 100% of the work?
You are looking at $5,000.00 - $7,000.00 USD.

If the head is NOT damaged, and you can do 100% of the work?
You are looking at $2,800.00 - $4,000.00 USD in parts.
