I...i....I don't know what to say other than: HOLY SHIT!
Thank you for the offer!

If you can find out anything man, that'd be amazing! It's the early 88210 head with matching cams. We have already learned about the other versions of the head (Used in the 18R-GU/GEU etc), and we know we have the best cam specs from the factory, but the smallest valves. We might have a lead on getting the larger valves from the later heads however...course, that's going to cost more money to get the valve ports opened up and hardened seats.

If you could find valve guides, valve seats, tensioners for the timing chain, we'd be in your debt man!

Course, if you find the rumored 16 valve racing head, we'd shit our pants and worship you as god

No, that's the Godfather of all things Toyota related with sport!
I thought the worship would have been obvious for that one

Man, it's sad. We know of an 18R-GU/GEU head that was rather heavily damaged:
The owners had just built up the engine, and the #3 cylinder sucked a bolt in. They didn't notice for a week, until the bolt killed the piston.....

Err, we are wandering off topic rather far eh?

Err, I would have pics of how it is now, except we haven't taken any of the car as a whole.
For now however, we removed the fuel cell, the rear lexan, and the front fenders.
We found some more rust in the trunk arean, but it should be easy enough to repair.
We also removed the dash, since we have plans on how to upgrade it, and we needed to see the wiring of the car...so that we can replace it.
Started work at organizing the garage a bit, as well, we received a later model 18R-GEU head (270 casting), that came from an engine that sucked a bolt into Cyl 3. The damage is fairly extensive, but it might be repairable....might be. If the head isn't cracked, we might try to find an excellent welder who specializes in aluminum to lay some weld over the damage, and then have it machined back into shape.
Either that, or we strip out the valves, and get our 210 casting machined to fit.
The reason we would go to the extra length with the 270 head, is that the head features improved casting design, with more webbing in the camshaft area, adding some significant strength....it looks like anyways.

As it is now:




Interesting dual coils on the front struts:




Took out the rear lexan windshield (That's me in there working on removing the dash)


Dash removed. Needed to work on....and remove the wiring.


Rear Axle (Juno, the Daytona is jealous )


18R-G sitting in the engine bay:




270 Casting head that's damaged, we are going to see if it can be repaired (Stronger casting, and bigger valves)



Oh, and new shelves in the garage:
