Thanks for the help! Nice find..

Only issue is I live down in melbourne so if I bought it, I would still have to pay $50-$100 postage to get it here. Which means I'll be looking at $250-$300 and I guess have no idea what these are worth.. so I was just wondering if they are worth paying that for?

Thanks again, appreciate it.

People have spent $700 on a good base P90 head in the past.
$300 is still pretty good.
But, get a quote off E-go.
I've had a whole L28 delivered from Brisbane through them for $140  :o

Seems like a fair bit of interest/watchers on this, just a suggestion, if there are a few on this forum showing interest in this, and in the interests of not starting a bidding battle, it may be an idea to declare who is showing interest, and who was " first"
Dont flame me, but lets not sqabble!
BTW i am not interested, i already have a couple stockpiled.
Knock yourselves out!

To be fair, I am one of the interested parties. Perhaps too interested for my own good, haha. I have a fairly decent bid on the head at the mo, but it is almst expected that, on ebay, that an item such at this will have a few people bidding on it last minute. At Z, if you want to chat, flick me a PM :)

Well it's a good price for a P90 and I'd be interested, but right now I'm not in a rush to get 1 so I can wait.

P90 is the best engine head....period.
