I don't think so.

the #22 is the newest casting from MB.

I'd go for the #20, and take him up on the offer to have the machine work done before it arrives, unless you have a shop you prefer.

have him PRESSURE TEST the head, and VERIFY the head will be in spec before you get it.

that 18 with the broken ear, looks like it was running for a while with a bad head gasket in 3 cylinders.

Is this car a keeper of fix and sell? An extra $1500 spread over the life of a keeper is change. With the right documentation, you should recover some of cost if/when you sell it.

Working on getting a #20. It needs to pass a Leak test though. Hold onto the 17 for now. Anybody have a line on monarch nozzles? Might as well redo the injectors too! This car is a keeper. The #14 lasted over 200 K. Thanks for the Help!

PM greazzer in regards to injectors. He's the resident injector guru.
