5erman, so the pulled and replaced head looked like this?
Any idea what happens to the old heads? Will they be revised and recycled into the new ones, or is it just "scrap"?

NOTE: I copied these pics from the very first page of this threat - thanks for providing.

The service manager and their shop foreman performed and oversaw the job and then showed me my old cylinder head and what the suspected problem was. Was pretty interesting. He had 6 other heads that had been pulled.

So to confirm, yes this is the complete head with cams, valves/springs, lifters, rockers and etc. Every piece of the valve train.

Car seems to be running well and all is well now. Nice to have pretty much a new engine at 38k miles-I will take it
