If you get it cheap, yeah. Consider that there may be engine damage from blown headgasket. If the head is warped, you'll need a new one (couple hundred $$$) Headgasket and head stud kit will be another couple hundred for higher-end aftermarket performance parts. If you're shopping it out, labour is about $900 - $1200.

i just bought a 94 1.8l eclipse with 127,000 miles on it and it took me about 3 days to fix it myself, luckily my head itself wasnt warped so all i had to do was replaces the gasket, that and the thermostat because often the thermostat brakes and you cant tell if the engine is over heating. I got mine for $250 so i got a pretty good deal, i say go for it as long as its cheap.
