    I have a small port APU head
    been dipped, stripped, skimmed 20 thou for flatness,
    fitted with new supertech valve guides (£150 worth!) and has new unused valve stem seals also.

    I keep seeing whole engines going for silly money and could really do with getting some cash back from this.

    Is £300 too much to ask or am wasting my time?

    Does it have valves/springs etc?

    I paid £100 for a brand new Audi recon cylinder head, with new cams and cam chain tensioner, but no cam chain and no valves fitted.

    I never used it in the end, ended up just using the tensioner from it, so its just sat there in my spare room.

    that does not sound right.
    a cylinder head from audi should be in the region of £750 with nothing in it.
    can i have the dealers number so i can get a couple off them??

    It wasnt from a dealer, it was from ebay.

    Was a standard 7 day auction with a £99 start.

    I stuck £150 on it and expected to get beat, and won it for £102 or so.
