    Summit or Jegs is the best bet for heads.
    Mine cost me over $600 by the time it was all said and done.
    A set of WP heads are not much more and flow alot better than the set of 35 year old heads I had redone.

    It starts off with just a simple valve job, then it needs guides, hardened seats, may as well get some studs too, the valves are iffy so.... see where this is going?

    I need to have my head examined for having all that work done to a set of 35 year old heads.
    Oh well it's only money. :haha:

    Package each head seperatly.. Then get a wieght on them and check with Fedex.. I don't think it would be that bad from up there to CA on fedex ground..
