Are you talking about the area I boxed in red?



If so don't worry about that, it is just extra material from when it was cast. Some people when they build their heads "gut" them which is taking all that little extra casting material out for a bit better oil flow.

Second picture looks like it has 3 cracks.. Exhaust cam hold down bolt holes 2 places, 1 by the first cam hold down from the timing gears and the second one back. Intake cam retainer closest to timing gear. (guessing)??

I also see no cracks and nothing unusual. I also feel the GSR and B16 are the same for the most part. If you want a little more compression go with the GSR head.

B16 and gsr heads are almost the same. It was already said twice. Gsr heads have a little more compression.
