I wouldn't doubt it a bit. I was selling 2.02" valve aluminum heads with .600 lift hyd. roller springs for $750. I was buying them bare and having them assembled. The machine shop that assembling them for me though is closed now. I'll probably look for a new shop to work a deal with this winter.

Those are the same heads but bare. They are $399 assembled and $275 bare. I was selling mine for $475 bare or $750 assembled. I wouldn't ship for that price though.

doesnt seem illogical. he can make more heads, so he can sell em cheeper. 175cc bare heads shouldnt go for more than that anyways imho, lol.

Size doesn't matter really though (in this case ). I sold 175cc, 190cc and 210cc all for the same price.

I don't know about those prices, I would be pretty wary. You get what you pay for, remember that. These guys sound kinda like Pro-Comp heads, but are a little bit cheaper. Some of the metal used in certain batches of Pro-Comp heads is absolute ****, so if you are buying pro-comps you should definately get them from a builder who knows how to sort out the good and the bad heads. Maybe Tri-state's prices are good, but can anybody stand up for their quality? Nadelle be our guinea pig, will you please? lol. Then we will know how they work for at least one person, which is better than none!
