I was wondering about that, the fact that their straight from the factory means they could have been cast anywhere. But iv'e never heard anything bad about them, NZAD is a company with good reputation. Maybe just ******* the springs and valves and go aftermarket. 'She'll be right

I found a couple references to the NZAD heads as "not being the cheap ProComp castings, with their porous and mixed alloy castings" and that they were made from A356 alloy, but that's all I could find...no listing of who actually made them. Maybe they are similar to the Assault casting that has shown up here in the USA

I keep insisting the bare castings of AFR or Brodix aren't that much money when considering what your paying and what you get................

He's in New Zealand though Gary, import taxes are probably the killer on that idea.
