Had I not had a spare engine I would have rebuilt head.
I'm kind of surprised that someone hasn't set up an exchange a head program, but then again quit the niche market.

Slivers,.... When I talked to my shop about a possible new cylinder head for my Smart in the future, that would be ported. He asked my to insure that such the ported head would not set off and check engine codes. and that when dealing with a California shop to make sure they understand that it would be for a New York emissions car.

Two questions. do you believe the Smart Engine could benefit from a ported head? And would they same ported head be different in California and New York emissions testing?
