On a V6 engine is it OK to replace one head and not the other?

    Situation is the cylinder head of a Mitsubishi 3.0 liter V6 engine was damaged after sucking a washer into the intake manifold.

    Question: is it OK to just replace the one damaged head or do both heads need to be replaced?

    My concern is an unbalance in power between the two banks - can this cause undue stress on pistons or connecting rods?
