    I got my gt-40s of EBAY for 197.50 to my door. Awsome deal. Assembled,cleaned, checked, and CC'd. Cant beat that. The gt-40s are a great budget head. Just search the classifeds on hear and www.corral.net and there are bound to be set RIGHT NOW somewhere. Dont pay anymore than 350-400. You may get lucky like me and get a set for cheap. Just search around.

    You can get NEW assembled gt-40p from CENTRAL COAST MUSTANG for 600. There are many places that you can get them. But they require different headers...but you are getting new headers anyway. And the ones that are special for P heads will fit the regular heads also. The stock ones will not really fit well with the p heads revised plug location. SOOOOOOO But if you are going to get 600 iron heads you may as well just save up and get a set of wicked aluminum heads. There is many places that have gt-40 p. Also roush iron heads are good. World heads are good. There are heads out there that are better than gt-40. You may want to check out www.thumperoforangepark.com........this is a guy who sets up E7TEs that outflow the gt-40 line. They are 550. They bolt on. freshly rebuilt with new everything.

    I would get #2 cause they have the good springs in them. If you get a cam down the road them you will be ok.
