Are these heads cheap or a freebie?

I ask because if the motor is apart it may be worth looking into something that has the potential to make more power. I say this as a guy who had an '89 GT with GT 40 heads (3 bar) and GT 40 intake, and I currently have an '87 GT.

My '89 was quick and fun for sure!

If/when I refresh the motor in my '87, I'm going TFS heads and the TFS track heat intake.

Is there a reason you're looking at the GT 40 heads? If so, totally cool, just wondering.

Good luck and have fun!
