The head is the original head with a ton of miles on it so I'm opting to purchase a remanufactured head and just put it on. I can't really find too many cams for this that would work for a street truck and not a circle track racer.
Good thing is the timing belt is not even 1200 miles worn in and the water pump was already replaced back in 2013.
I'm waiting for the 2.3t swap (or 5.0 if I can decide) before investing anything into the power aspect of the truck. Right now, I want it to run reliably for a little while.
While we are at it with the head replacement, naturally it is going to have the head gasket replaced with the Fel-Pro kit.
Will post pics when the head gets in later this week/weekend.
