Post Cylinder heads

What are the best aftermarket cylinder heads out there? I want the most bang for the buck. What are some advantages of aluminum heads and iron heads, besides the weight issue. Right now my 350 bottom end is stock with 4 valve relief dished pistons, I am using stock 1.94/1.50 heads. Will stepping up to 2.02/1.60 heads cause any damage, like piston to valve clearance problems? Thanks for all the help guys.

the best bang for the buck in aftermarkt heads are the Pro Topline series in iron or aluminum, almost exact copies of world products heads, made in New Zeeland, good stuff. Aluminum heads will allow you to run a bit more compression ratio and are more repairable if disaster happens.clearance problems will be determined more by your cam profile and piston design than by the heads .

I agree with Bob, right now the Topline heads are REALLY hard to beat dollar for dollar. I'm not sure if it's a good exchange rate or what but for the money you can't beat them.
