This is a bit of a loaded question. Heads, cam, and intake (along with all the other stuff) all work best when they are properly matched. I think you might want to ask yourself what kind of RPMs do you want to turn, which leads to the question of how do you want to make power, lots of torque with a lower RPM or higher RPM with lower torque etc. Guess I am trying to say in a long winded way the best head all depends on what you want to do with it.

Btw there is no way in hell any of those heads flow 800 cfm.
The best heads you could put on a stock bore ls1 engine that are reasonably affordable are
Take your pick, with the right cam for each, they will be within 5-10 rwhp for each.

Yeah, the Arao heads are a big joke.

Well before your drop $2200 on some AFR's, I put down 424rwhp/401rwtq(A4) with Patriot Stage II Ls6 'style' heads. $1300 assembled. Just food for thought.Curtis: I got laid last night
Curtis: 35 seconds
Curtis: it was awesome

Just curious as to why you put the AFR 205's instead of the 225's. With the extra stroke the 225's would be a better choice i would think. I also agree Patriot makes a good set of heads and should be considered. But this is just my $0.02.
