Need head advice

Figure I should start a new thread so people don't have to wade through my tunnel ram thread
I'm ordering heads tommorow....
I'm down to 2 choices
Summit house brand which I'm told, by summit today among many others are IK200 brodix.
200/64 CC, springs to 575 lift
Cost is 1054.00$
Or,
Edelbrock E-210
210/64 CC, springs to 575
Cost is 1029.00$
Those are cuttently the choices I have for a bunch of reasons I won't get into.
But has anyone used either or and what's the general consensus?
Thanks
Dave

if you are using the e tec 210s then the exhaust side is a little weak. I see you as a 215s or bigger kinda guy.
You will for sure need to check p2V some pistons will be ok,not worth guessing

I am a "bigger is better" kinda guy....but when it comes to heads, and only 360ci I don't suspect following my natural instinct is the best play here lol. So lets get your take
You know my cam, comp, and intake, gear is 488, stall is 3k
You have 1100$ and have to buy from summit or jegs.
What are you putting your cash on for best bang for the buck sir.
Thanks Vin!
Dave

This is easy 210 Pro Filers for the money nothing even close.
Give Chad a call at Speiers racing heads.
Guys amazing and can make some big power and tailor the heads to your engine combo.

you can also buy from "mopac" they are in langley BC.
I would use moderate heads and a bigger cam for myself.At 7200 rpm the power is,,,,,more. 3800 stall is good if you use a brake even better.

I suspect that's out of my summit/jegs buddget lol, I'm looking at 1263$ to my door for anybofnthe 1050$ heads from either of them.
The profilers alone are 1150 with a 550 lift spring, then brokerage etc to get them here....adds up fast.

Lol....OK, but for now, cam and stall is locked in....
So this is your build, and you have these parts....what's your head choice?
I'm OK with a smaller head if its going to improve everything, peak HP I know is not always the goal.....
And I have never heard of mopac....gonna Google now...

Mopac was started by a fella named George Duda in the 70s if I remember.
When he showed up to bracket race a boundary Bay airport to race,he used to cone off a parking spot and in chalk write in big letters ( like he was somebody) GEORGE DUDA

we would walk by and erase the "A"

I know nothing about profiler heads,,, maybe buy castings if they are iffy and buy Manley valves,use the springs from the cam kit

The castings aren't iffy... they're probably the best as cast head on the market.

I'm very impressed with what I read about them also. Extraordinary performance at a reasonable price. These could become the default SBC heads to begin a build with.
