well i took it up to the shop and they said something was warped or cracked, not blown.

and they said my best option would be just to replace the head.

What was warped cracked or blown? You should get more knowledgeable about what is going on with your car if you don't want to get ripped off. They should have been able to tell you exactly.

Check the FAQ for any mini-me write ups.
