Procomp aluminum heads

I've recently purchased a set of procomp aluminum heads. I've got them from a quality machine shop kingsport,tn. They have rectangular ports and 2.25 1.88 valves. I was wondering what special parts or steps do I need to take to run aluminum heads vs. cast? thx

Aluminum heads

You do need to run special coolant that is alum- compatible.

most coolants now a days are safe for aluminum
BUT!
make sure you use distilled water in your mix and a sacrifical anode in the radiator.
also procomps have been known problem makers.
I hope you got them for a good price.

When I got my Brodix RR heads,I took them apart and replaced the shim with a set of seat locators,heres a link;

I then checked pressures & height afterwards.

re:

Like I said I got this from a very good shop and I have quality parts to assemble them with. I'm also going to run them by my local machine shop to smooth the runners and check everything out. I got them for 965.00 for a set. pretty good i think

I would say that if you respect the ability of the shop you bought them from you should ask them their recommendations. Can help avoid any hassles on the small chance something goes wrong with them. They are warrantying them, not us.
