To be honest if its a mild street engine id just buy the 210cc procomps bare, clean them up, and assemble with the right springs and valves. I'm cheap though.

AP, you're "thrifty" and "financially responsible"!

I totally agree with buying the heads bare. Even if I were to get the AFR heads I would still have them cleaned up a tiny bit, but that is me. I'm willing to spend money (not that i'm rich or anything). I know that ProComp has improved their castings a lot over the last 5yrs or so, but just me personaly I would still be weary about useing them, but that is simply my opinion. There are plenty of people who have used them with no problems and are making decent power.

If you go with the AFR heads get the 195 heads and i would go with the last cam that i listed. this motor would likely be in the 450+hp range.
