What do you guys think about these heads? I am limited in my options of 95cc heads.  I can get them for a little over 1k each with no tax and no shipping charges.  I have done some reading and research now I want to hear from the big boys.  Let me hear it!!!  Thanks!

I have a set of those heads on my motor.  Had Paul go through them because I bought them used. Changed the spring to match my cam, good valve job and cleaned up the ports.. I had a set of tfs street heads but I had to run race gas.. so I switched to these to drop the compression ratio for pump gas..I have no complaints with the edelbrock heads, all the finish work is good with the heads..my motor is a 501 with flat tops Victor manifold, 1150 dominator carb.. spins an A impeller 5800 with a deep loader..

CHEAP, FAST, RELIABLE...PICK 2 CANT HAVE ALL 3

Ralph, thanks for the info. That will be similar to my set up and good to know that you did well with them.

Fullfam, little tweaking for marine friendly?

I enlarged the valve guides to give a little more clearance and changed to better seals. Not 100% necessary but I like the insurance

Stupid question, clearance from what?  Just to be horrifically clear.  Thanks!

From valve to valve guide. If it is too tight you could have a valve stick open
