Head compatibility

I was wondering if the heads from the different models and years were completely interchangeable or not? My timing chain tensioner went bad and I jumped time and now my valves took a crap. I can get all new valves, but for less there are a couple heads available. I have an 08 2.2. The heads available come off 06 2.2 and the other is an 09 SS (dunno if 2.0 or 2.4). I was wondering if either of those would work without having to change anything else. I recently lost my job and every dollar counts

No those heads wont work, you would need an 07-08 2.2 head for a direct bolt on. However the valves are all the same size for the different heads so it might be worth picking one of them up and just pulling the valves out of it and cleaning them up to put in. I could always look to see if I still have my old valves for you though if you want. Not sure how many of your valves got bent but I'm pretty sure at least one of mine are bent. If I can find them I'll send them to you for whatever it costs to ship them

I've moved since then so it might take some searching haha I know they are in a bag somewhere though along with the stock springs and retainers. I know at least one is bent, possibly all 4 from that cylinder after the rod exploded and smashed the piston into the head
