I already messaged him about the core charge.

True on them being "cleaned" up already. I'd plan on updating the valvetrain anyhow, so they'll be looked over again for sure.

I paid 900 shipped for bare GT heads but the cam caps needed to be honed and worked over a bit. Nothing to major as I planned having fox lake do some work on them anyways.

I have been watching that add for awhile .... its dropped a couple times... its not the greatest deal.

+1 on getting a full long block. You will get the valve covers and timing cover plus an extra block and crank! If youre luck you can get the wiring harness. If your unlucky you can get a bad driver side head with the cam towers wiped out and the crank is toast..... Pull the Drivers side valve cover first and assess the cam journals... check the oil pan for debri .... those are 2 indicators of a good motor if nothing is wrong.

Look on car-part.com or craigslist

I found numerous complete motors for under the asking price of that listing

I scored my navi motor for 150$
+1 buy a complete JY longblock, much better deal

That is all really good advice! I'll start looking locally for a longblock then.

Guy at my yard has one in a running 01 navigator still driveable that he would sell for 750. IM sure you are going build bottom end, but at least you know there is a better chance of it not having oil pressure or cam tower damage.
