This isnt really for me, just trying to help my brother out in the Denver Area..

His OB has roughly 180+k miles on it. For about the last 80k miles, the check engine light has been on. The Mechanic he took it to said the valves on cylinders 1 and 4 are burnt. Assuming what the Mechanic told him is true, he is most likely going to need a valve/head job, if not a new motor.

So a couple questions..

Better to get a newer motor, or rebuild his heads, or just get new heads?

Are any of our local Colorado members mechanics? And are they able to take on any jobs of this caliber?

Thanks in advance..
