    I wouldn't touch those things. Send your OE heads out to Total Engine Airflow (TEA) or Advanced Inductions (AI) for work. They have the best programs available for 243 heads hands down.

    Never heard of those heads...likely just put their name on someone else's product. Seems to be the way of just about every Corvette "specialist".

    I have. Although, I've never heard of their outstanding ability to port heads. And as most other Corvette "Specialists" the work was more than likely farmed out to some outside half-assed company since that seems to be the general rule. The OP would be buying a name.

    Re: heads?

    WTF is up with those rockers? Any of those rollers actually on the valve stem? Is this something weird about 1.8's (i.e. the only way to make them fit?)

    Maybe it's just me, but if I had a nice set of low-mileage heads that I wanted to sell, I'd at least clean those suckers up, maybe scrape the old gasket material off the mating surface, maybe line up the roller part of the rocker arms with the valve stem or something, before taking a picture of them. But, that's just me.

    With the weird angle those rockers are going, it reminds me of this:
