get an e series head ef or el and get some work done on it.. all the top guys know that AU heads are s**t.. EF/L are better. get someone to do some work on it..

talk to Jaysen at RPD, he knows head(s) haha. but there are lots of guys who will let you know what they think is good.

Yeah, sometimes you gotta ask youself why you are doing something, AU heads are much more difficult to fit, and dont really have much benefit.
find a nice EF/EL head and have some work done do it, cheaper, and better.
