I'm after advice as to which alloy heads to fit to fit to my AU 5.0 L series 2
Ideally a head & cam package.The car is a auto with standard stall & 3.55 gears

Somewhere around $2500 to spend

Cheers

Brad

Great set of heads, if you can step up to them, they are well worth it.

Also Trickflow are another good option.

Dont bother.

AFR165s all the way on a 5.0. Although with the $$ the way it is your looking at 3g for heads alone. Then a cam is $500 plus all the required gaskets etc.
Save the pennies for a while mate then go from there.
