Re: Price for new Vortec heads
Look into the new Bowties - they're based on the Vortec design, can use either a dedicated Vortec intake or conventional bolt pattern intake with raised runners, can use either centerbolt or perimeter bolt valve covers and are a lot thicker castings than production vortecs. By the time you get the machine work done to a pair of production castings, you'll probably be close to the cost of these.
The only thing I'm doing to mine is having the metric rocker stud bosses machined for conventional 7/16" base studs...
