With that compression i'll assume it's a race engine. Do you already have the parts?

I've heard good things about Dart heads. But if you're on a budget a lot of guys use the Patriot freedom series 800 bucks ready to run is hard to beat.

Procomp 210's, buy them bare, assemble and check everything yourself. Clean up the casting and bowl area.

if you have the money large port vortec heads are great too.

I like the patriots. Same specs as the more expensive brands. Only reason they're cheaper is because you're not getting the big name that goes witht the higher cost pieces.
