What timing on this topic! Sorry to hear about your situation Larry3. I did a ton of checking looking for a steal of a price on a set of al heads. Saw those super flows from the same site, but they were supposed
to come from Australia which raised some flags. I remembered some cheap imitaion aluminum parts coming from there a couple of years bak, so decided to steer clear. Glad I did now.
Ever notice how many of these 'new' cheap priced al heads have 'Pro' attached to their name? Makes a guy wonder when you then hear some of the names associatedwith the name, and ending up with a crappy result after tons of additional work to make them work right. I know just because they have 'Pro' attached to the name really doesn't tie them together, but when most seem like junk?, hmmmm.
I ended up buying a set of Brodix RR200's and they should be here next week. Bought them from tonybarkerracingengines.com
out of Mendenhall, Ms. Got a great price on them, some Corteco head gaskets and Felpro intake gaskets. Hopefully they are 'bolt on ready' like they are supposed to be.
One thing I was told by a few different people and I cannot verify it, so take it with a grain of salt. Most al head castings are made in China with the name brands being machined and built here. I hope someone can prove that wrong because, like someone said earlier, we need to keep our manufacturing wizardry here and not overseas.
Please, prove this wrong, someone.........
