Pro Comp BBC Heads

Ok guys, why are these heads so cheap when compared to Brodix aluminum heads or even a set of reworked 990 retangular port castings? Is it because they are cheaply made? Any advice from those of you who know your big block chevy parts or know about Procomp heads would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Ok after doing just a little research, I guess these are made overseas. So I guess I have answered my own question as far as cost. Anyone using these currently and what have been your successes or failures with them?

I am just thinking I am going to have to save a little longer and go Brodix but wanted to hear from some of you experienced guys here before I bite the bullet....

I don't have any experience with Pro Comp heads personally but have read many a horror story about them. Recently I have read their BB heads are getting much better but I would still stick to a reputable head if it were my money.
