Depends on how much power your trying to make. Remember, in your case being a blower app. the more money you spend getting the engine itself to produce power, the less boost you have to run to get to your goal. If your goals are 400-500hp, no big deal, but if your looking for something like 750-800, that could be the difference between running being able to run pump gas or having to step up to race fuel.

Get Timeserts installed on all eight cylinders, much cheaper than either option listed above and never pop a plug again.

I wish I had the money for new heads. Now you have me questioning whether I should buy a blower or new heads and cams.
