    On other forums, I sometimes see nicely used AFR 205 heads that fit in your budget.

    Texas Speeds PRC heads are the best budget heads out there right now. LS6 or 5.3s, call them and they can steer you in the right direction.

    I'd don't think those heads have any milling done. OP make sure you keep an eye on your compression ratio.

    if i was to do it all over i would not have picked my darts... or even AFR's
