I dropped off the block and heads today at the machine shop and was talking to the guy there about the heads, and we where talking about whether or not it was worth redoing them, due to the fact that the valve seats and other stuff would have to be redone and it would end up costing a bit. What do yall think, redo the heads or go with a new cast iron head. I am not going to be making huge amounts of hp, so keep that in mind. Plus the car is almost completely stock. thanks

I'd check to see how much $$ you'll have into your stocks before you go for it... I've heard it's not tough to dump $600 into heads. I was looking at some World Products cast iron heads, as an example, for $780 plus shipping at http://www.northernautoparts.com/ProductModelDetail.cfm?ProductModelId=1343&CFID=2309316&CFTOKEN=95675739 (that's 280 each plus 220 for head kit).

I'd go with the Motorsport M6049L302 heads versus rebuilding old heads. These heads are new, ready to bolt on, and are only 299 ea from Mustangs Unlimited. I've seen them cheaper from other places. Anyone else using these heads? Comments?

Um, boy I feel dumb, but did you copy paste my previous response? :)
