It is possible to replace the head gaskets and heads. It is not as good as the entire engine as the bottom of the engine would be used with miles on it and the top new. It really depends on how long you plan on keeping the car. If you are going to keep it for a while (several years) i would do the engine. If 2 years or less I would do the heads.

Do you have a ballpark price on new heads. The dealer wants $7000 for a new engine.

$2,700.00 to do the heads.
