    Honestly Jeff I would Try to find something a little better...if you can...the reason I say this is..with boost you are putting some good pressure on the valves and springs...weak stuff you will loose boost..maybe blow some oil out the exhaust...etc..etc...I got mine from twin cities mustang forum.try other mustang forums...you check the corral?..they always have stuff there too...

    No one said its cheap to go fast...LOL....I was using that as an example...there are other on that forum..I like Aluminum heads takes some heat out of the cylinders..aids in helping with pinging...those heads have better clamping force thicker then a GT40 or stock head wont have the head lift under boost...so many reason to get Alum heads...lol

    Hey @TOOLOW91 if you're on facebook go like this page----> Fox Body Mustang Parts & Cars For Sale. You'll be surprised with some of the stuff that people are selling on there...and most of the people are on the east coast, so you might find something close to you.
