not sure on the quality but the price sure does seem right. compare the specifics to a known good quality set of heads, motorsports, etc.

If they are Pro Comp I'd stay away from them. If you want to buy Pro Comp, get them bare. All the parts they use are China junk. You get what you pay for in aluminum heads.

Second that. I tracked down blue thunder heads. They aren't being made at this time, so you have to settle for used.

big vann is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I've read lots of negative feedback about Procomp heads on the 460ford.com forum.You're better off with a quality brand than a cheapo imitation.Those are less than half the cost of a pair of heads from a reputable manufacturer.Makes you wonder what "shortcuts" had to be made.

Look like Pro-Comps to me. I have a set that I haven't installed yet. Decent "stock" type re-placement if you have EVERYTHING on them checked before installation. NOT meant to be a "performance" or "race" head.

Are you looking at the ones from J&C enterprises That sure is a nice price for a complete set of built heads. Does anyone here have them they have sold several sets on e-bay this year and I dont see any negative feed back. Im new what if anything do I need to put in the title block for replies?
