    Default 990 BBC heads

    If anyone is interested, please PM for details and photos, don't think there needs to be any further debate by guys who had no interest in purchase in the first place. I stand behind everything I sell or work on, can't hardly get stock 990's that need rebuilding for this price. My set has a fresh valve job, surfacing, and professional porting job (in the opinion of people who have viewed them in person), not just some quick and dirty pocket port, $600

They are a little dirty from sitting, but otherwise look to be in really nice condition. $600
    a little "high" priced for a bare set of heads, considering the buyer has to buy valves, springs etc!!...just my .02 cents

    That is a bargain.

    That is a bit of a contradiction. Putting a value on the work, but un aware of who did them. Anyone can hog out a port and make it shiny. Sometimes it helps, and most times it hurts performance. Unless these heads are assembled and flow benched they are a crap shoot at best. I agree with Ron, $600. for those unknown, un tested heads, is asking for blue sky, plus the expense of components and assembly before you would even know what you have. I could see the cost if they were virgin, or if you could put a name on them. They may very well be worth the price to someone, but IMO, not me....MP

    wow ... what a way to come in and throw some salt on someones spam.

    Have you priced how much having o-ring grooves installed in heads are? About $300 ... and even a cheap port clean up is about $300-$400. Then there is the cost of the bare heads themselves.

    I think it's a more than fair price. I guess that's why they're opinions though, and everyone has a right to their own.

    I doubt that port job would help a bone stock (as in 78 trucK) low compression engine. lol...

    Ray, seriously,,, you don't think that looks like a very good porting job?

    Obnoxious has a solid rep and I would use these heads in a second.
