I'm just going through this myself.

Any 10v fuel injected mechanical head will be a suitable donor, and then transfer the components over. My WR is actually running a KG head, which I then had refurbished.
The base casting part number is 035103373AD. This is the number which appears cast in, on the left hand side of the head, just below the cam cover surface. It's then machined and prepped to suit the application.

Based on discussions recently with a fella wot knows his stuff, a normally aspirated head will have the additional value of not having been stressed quite as hard as a turbo head.

Don't scrap the old head just yet, though.
My WRs original head is actually quite rough, but may still be recoverable, subject to a lot of serious work.
