Burned valves. Should I just find another head, or fix the ones I've got. I have two right hand heads with smoked exhaust valves, and I would like to use a good EJ22 head on the EJ25 i'm picking up tonight.

what engine is this? what are you trying to do with it? i always opt for a full valve job, mill and test the heads. then you know yo'ure golden once you get it back together and won't have to go back in there again. if the block isn't worth all of that too you, then find some used heads.

Do you have any idea why you have burnt valves?

I'm running lean money wise right now, so spending money getting a full valve job is out of the question. I'm commuting an hour and a half through around 15 stoplights and 3 stopsigns on 3cyls. I could buy a 2.2 for 100 bucks, but I have a 2.5 I traded a taurus for all ready to pull. I have to do the headgaskets on it anyways, so I would like to put some 2.2 heads on it and keep my intake manifold (with a new injector on #3) The extra compression would be nice too.
