a really good head shop won't care what make of engine they go on, its irrelevant. There are some shops that's specialize in some makes but it has more to do with marketing and volume than anything else.

What are the heads for? Is there a price range? There are a few VERY expensive and not so well known but VERY talented shops out there, they can charge 10 grand a set and have a back log through next year. If you're looking for the absolute best be prepared to spend more on heads than many of us spend on the entire car.
