Default Head identification help

Greetings!

I recently purchased a used 2006 Cruiser, and shortly afterwards (of course!) had the head gasket blow. I have help coming in to pull the head and do the repair work this weekend, but in order to source a new (refurb) head (so we can do a clean swap), I need to know if my head has an EGR or not. I'm not at all familiar with this engine, so if anyone had a picture handy (or at least information on WHERE TO LOOK), that would be enormously helpful.

With a little luck, after this weekend I'll actually be able to DRIVE my Cruiser again, the poor thing has been sitting longer than running since I've had it.

No EGR on a 06.

Awesome, thanks! Now I just need to double-check the casting number, I may have mis-read it last night in the dark. By Sunday I should know more about this engine than I ever intended to.

Usually heads don't need to be replaced just for a headgasket change.
There's always the risk what you're putting on is worse than what you have- There's many aspects to a cylinder head.

The problem is timing. I ONLY have help this weekend, when every machine shop that could check and plane the head is closed. So I either replace the head with a known, good one, or play roulette and put the old one back on. I hate to spend the money, but I need to get this right the first time.

Related question: The head bolt set I got are all the same length, but my Haynes manual talks about different-length bolts. Are the '06 bolts supposed to be all the same length? That seems logical, but with vehicle parts logic is not always reliable.

Rochndil, working to eliminate as many sources of error as possible...
