360 stroker head help

Howdy I got a 1973 ford F250 with a 360 FE married to a 3 speed toploader. Its been my faithful daily driver since I was 16. Now Ive joined the navy and got some money to sink into it and I am attempting to get the parts lined up for a decent street build.. So far all I have managed to acquire is a new scat crank (9000 series with the 4.125 stroke) at an auction. And in my ingorant teen years I slaped on an old police intercepter intake and a 500 elkey. Ive been looking at new heads for awhile and im just not sure what I need. If money was not an issue I would for sure go with the new heads from surivial. But they seem more strip oriented then what I need. The aluminum elkeys seem to be what I need but im not smart enough to know if aluminum heads on a cast iron block is a good or bad idea. Also theirs a new head on the market made by someone called bear block motors? The price puts them between the elkys and Barrys but i cant seem to find any feed back on them yet. Any advice on this would be greatly appriciated. Thanks in advance.

Alot of people here using the Edelbrocks , no issues from what I have seen .
If they were in my budget I'd be running them .

The general consensus has been that a pair of Edelbrock aluminum heads cost just about the same as completely redoing a set of cast-iron heads with new valves, hardened exhaust seats, and all the machining.

Unless you have a set of cast-iron heads that are near perfect and only need a little (or no) work, if you're building a stroker you might as well just get a set of Edelbrock heads.

Aluminum heads, iron block, no issues that anyone has reported here.
