SBC heads 462624 vs 333882

OK, so I just found out from the machine shop that my heads are both cracked. They were 462624's and a local junkyard that rebuilds heads has a set of rebuilt 333882's for $275. They are both 76cc heads with .194 valves. Are there any other differences that matter? Any other head suggestions for a man on a shoestring budget?
Thanks
Tom

A set of heads for 275 bucks from a JUNKYARD that rebuilds heads.

I think your answer is obvious.

Well in there defense, they are the biggest dirt track racers in Omaha NE, (Kosiskis) and they have a separate engine perforance shop, so I think they are fairly reputable rebuilders. Plus one of my buddies works the counter and will take care of me if I have any troubles.
Iron Darts are like $400 X 2 in Summit, and I really don't want to spend that much if I can avoid it. I guess my question is are the 882's as good as the 462624's that I was planning on using?

They flow the same. A set of 624 heads that arent cracked is pretty rare I think they keep them in the Smithsonian.

If the 882 heads arent cracked theres nothing wrong with using them.
Ask them if they have a set of 993 castings, theyre pretty common and are a better head than the 882.

882s make better boat anchors than the 624s.
