How much would these be worth?

I have a used set of iron cylinder heads, less then 1000 miles, here is a description from their website:

Pro Topline S-RT Iron Heads
76CC Combustion Chamber
167 CC Intake

Designed for Severe Duty with Hydraulic Cams, Kit includes 1.437 Manley Springs single Spring w/Damper (115 lbs Seat pressure at 1.800/250 open pressure 550 max lift, Manley Chrome Moly Retainers & Machined Locks, Manley Severe Duty Intake 2.02 & Manley 1.60 Inconel Valves). You still get the increased flow of multi-angle intake and radiused exhaust valve seats. In fact, Pro Topline says the 23 heads out flowed similar aluminum and cast iron heads on the market by 5% for a BIG improvement in low-end torque and top-end horsepower. Also feature an improved water jacket design, which increases flow around the plugs for improved combustion, angles plug locations, and a three angle valve job. Best of all, they accept conventional piston and valve train components for easy bolt-on power.

I was trying to figure out what value they would be if I decide to sell them? They cost $999 if purchased new and assembled. Thanks for the help

76cc heads in my books would be very undesireable.

Re: How much would these be worth?

Ok, thanks, but they have their applications also. What I am looking for is what value someone thinks they are worth, not if they are desirable or not.

Agreed.... 76cc heads in my books would be very undesirable.

Also, 167 CC Intake those are pretty small ports. Probably a step above stock application depending on what the compression chamber looks like. Will probably make good low end torque but don't expect to make much HP with them. $400-600 used

Re: How much would these be worth?

What do boat anchors sell for in your area. Undesirable means put them up on e-bay with no reserve and take what you can get for them.

Re: How much would these be worth?

Heads are similar to RHS. I don't believe they are in business any more which may also hurt value

When I buy used whether they have 1000 miles or 10000 miles are worth no more then 1/2 the cost of new.

Would be a good head for a budget build boosted motor
