well when i bought my car it came with a reconditioned head as the other one had blown the gasket on the exhaust side due to overheating
i got a couple of question to ask so ill fire away!
one of my heads is labeled 52f20 (one on the car) and 52f21 (the head that i was planning to put on the car) believe its on the baffle plate???
can anyone shed some light on this?
also any tips and tricks to getting the exhaust manifold and throttle body off whilst in the engine bay?

IF ANYONE CAN HELP ME IT WILL BE GREATLEY APPRECIATED!!!

The heads, I think the first one on the car is series 1 S14 and the F21 is series 2

The exhaust manifold is straight forward, nuts can be pretty tight. The TB is just alan key bolts and disconecting the accelerator cable, coolant line and TPS plug

No, so long as it has the VCT its a straight swap otherwise it would be a S13 head
