Yeah, don't do it. You can look online to do a search on these heads, you'll find more complaints than praises. You get what you pay for.

From what I have herd they don't flow any wear near what they claim. You would probably be better off spending the extra money on a good set of heads.

Pro Comp and Patriot are two different companies, Patriot heads are made over seas in Asia some were. (Kind of wonder why they call them Patriotís?) Pro Comp are getting better but have heard a lot of complaints about them too. Save a little more and get some Edelbrock heads

I bought a set of their big block heads. They work just fine and make plenty of power.

If I had to guess based, on the few time slips I have, I'd say the heads I got were worth around 70-80hp over my old ported gm castings. The old square port heads were a little small for the 505, and the small chambers limited my choice of pistons, so a lot of the improvement came from the new heads having properly sized ports for my application.

BUT, always a but in there, and an if,

If I had twice as much money to spend on heads I'd certainly have gotten a pair of Dart or Brodix heads for my pig block.
