U13 bluebirds are stacked 10 high at most wreckers (well, maybe a slight exageration, but there are plenty around), so yeah, its easy enough to get hold of a FWD one. Need very minor work to convert to RWD.

RWD heads off Navara's aren't as easy to find here.

I like the external water pipe, years ago I talked a mate into doing that setup on his turbo motor because the previous engine had lots of damage to the head from excessive temps around the chambers. We modelled it off the pictures from the crossflow L head (or was it an FIA head... can't remember).  As an example of how bad the head had been corrorded, the return feed to the water pump near No.1 spark plug had about 1mm of metal left.  Probably a combination of pump cavitation and nucleate boiling around the exhaust valves.
