buy a new short block for 2000-rebuild the head and be done with it. You could than sell your old short block and recover some of the money. Toyota builds the tightest engines out there-it is very hard to reproduce their tolerances. If you are not building up the engine(forged pistons, rods, etc) your best bet will be a new short block, esp at the price they are.
