Not to sure about the costs for shot blasting.

But I had a head off a puma 1.7 zetec, treated to a acid bath & it came out as good as new :)

Sand blasting would clean it up too, do you have a mate who works in a factory, and they have one there.

why not send it to cylinder head developments and get it ported and flowed, and they will clean it up anyway! cost is £350.

and you could get a big valve conversion at the same time, not cheap but would give a bloody nice power gain (i got one waiting in the garage to be done lol)

andy weston is a top bloke i would go down the route phil said and have it sent to cylinder head developments and head mods make the most gains on a turboed car with a set of cams with pulleys which he also does but dont go to mad with the spec of cam will mess the balance up ok

Shot blasting or sand blasting a head is not a good idea, I usually take mine to the local engine builders and ask them to hot wash it, It just goes in a large vat of hot chemicals for a day or so, comes out looking clean and new.

How can you tap and die something, You either tap it or die it but not both.
A tap cuts threads into a hole,
A die cuts threads into a rod/bolt.
