I don't have the coin to start swapping out heads and intakes due to the $ I have invested on this new engine
See, if you had invested
the money wisely I doubt you'd be having these issues. Just because the parts were/are new does not make it a worthwhile investment. Like said, cut your losses. What would be the big deal to remove those heads and sell them to another sap, and get yourself a set of heads that are known to be worthwhile, an investment, both in time and money.
