Whats the views between the 2, only couple hundred bucks between them both seem to be built very well.

You'll find mixed opinions anywhere. In the end it comes down to $.

AFRs do cost more money but flow better out of the box. Search Corral and AFRs own site has reviews on their own heads from magazines etc.

Are edelbrocks ported from factory (not just standard casting).

I believe that AFR have the best conbustion camber design so AFR is the choice for me

AFR are CNC machined.. While the others unless specified are out of the box..
That's what you pay for..
Be aware of weak valve springs when using a performance roller cam..
