FS '91 300 2.5 Turbo with bad head

I've recently spent a ton of money on this car and have really taken good care of it.
Now it's leaking from around one of the pre chambers and the local specialist says the only way to even diagnose it is to pull the head.
Then...it might need a new head.
So...I guess this is a parts car.
I'm not familiar enough with this problem to know how long this car will continue to run, but you can probably drive it just about anywhere. I'm still driving it locally and if you didn't know it had a problem, you'd think it was fine.
Sunroof. Minor rust on wheel well edges. New tires. New glow plugs. Injectors newly rebuilt with Bosio nozzles, 230k mikes, new ball joints, new shocks, auto. trans shifting a little funny, new A/C evaporator (HUGE job!), synthetic oil since 170k.
Car is in SE PA...Near Philly..Spring City.
Please call or email so I don't have to check the forum all the time.
