Old 041 heads

I have an opportuity to get a pair that has been gone through with 2.02/1.6, screw in's and guides for about $500. Is this a good deal. I figure if I bought the heads cheaper, I would probably pay this or close to have them gone through. Any opinions on these heads and are they worth it. Can I find a better head for around the same price. I know Vortecs, but again, they will need to be set-up with screw in/guides, so I don't see why getting them UNLESS they are that much more better than the 041 heads.

These heads are going on a mild 350 build. I'm not a racer, just like my stuff to run should I decide I want to get in it. No ET racing though.

Thoughts please on these heads as I know they are older technology.. I can use as a go between head until I can get something else. These heads have accessory holes.

These are decent heads and were as good as it got in the pre smog days. They and the 041X were found on 302s and the LT1, 350s of the era. They're down maybe 20 hp against a modern Vortec but they're a decent find. Heavy castings to boot, not nearly as crack prone as the post 74 castings.
