Plug angles are coordinated with chamber shape for better flame travel, etc. Time passes, ideas change, and so does technology. Some heads also have the plug moved over sideways to center the spark tip. Ideas like extended tip plugs have the same effect to help center the flame travel.
In reality, there is only minimal real world differences in most all the heads.

If you can't get headers, don't get the heads.
