Great sound and gains even though it is an older cam you dont need a custom grind for your setup.
I was going to second this...but they are not cheaper. A SINGLE assembled head is $600...not worth it for iron. If you find them on CL or racingjunk then maybe because they'll be used...then they could be a decent deal, but not brand new. Why spend $1200 when you can get the whole top end kit from edelbrock with aluminum heads for $1500?
