If you do the labour part yourself i.e. removing the head, fitting the head, fitting the cam and valve springs.. then you can easily fit headwork and a good cam into that price range :)

If you get a decent cam, you'll need better valve springs. So you'll be pushing past the $400 mark.

If you're not worried about money too much, why don't you get a package deal from someone. Get yourself a nice discount :)
