aluminum for me all the way!

the biggest disadvantage of aluminum heads is price. Airflow=power, lighter weight = power and they also let you get away with a higher compression ratio.

The biggest advantage of steel heads is that you can stick the do not touch magnets to them at shows. You also don't have a problem with bolts and spark plugs wanting to weld themselves in place.

I built my own Ford heads. (68 302 4-V 54cc) Have about $750 in them and I did my own port/polishing. But I cheated; I put chevy valves in them!(1.94/1.60)

Ford sells aluminum small block heads.
Get yourself a 2002 SVO parts catalog and check out all the performance parts Ford sells.
The GT-40X heads are supposed to flow pretty good
