Why? Trust me, I'm not going for top quality, maximum performance here..anything will be better than the 180 hp it's putting out now.

What about a set of the summit vortecs?

because procomps are made in china, and have **** quality control and tend to do things like break springs or drop valves.


bare pro comps assembled by a machine shop that fixes all the casting and production **** ups arn't as bad however.

so you feel comfortable building an engine with heads that are known to fail on street cars constantly?


better hope they last long enough for you to unload on some poor sap. if heard of them failing under 2k miles.


also pro tip when selling a car, the better the parts on it the quicker it goes.

That's why I posted here. I was asking if that was a good purchase, and now you have informed me that it isn't. But as you can see, I'm working with a small budget, so suggestions close to that price would be nice. I COULD buy a $1,500 set of heads, but it's not worth it to me. $5-800 range sounds much better.

Also, if the car doesn't sell in a reasonable amount of time, I'm gonna keep it.

But I don't want to "build" it per say. I just know that there is much more potential in it. I don't need 450+ hp. 300 would be more than fine.

I completely understand.

Maybe I'm not making myself clear enough.

This car will never see a drag strip/track in my possession. All I want out of it is for a ****ing 4 cylinder honda not to give me a hard time from stop light to stop light. It's annoying having a car that can wake up a neighborhood, but it's all bark and no bite. 300~ HP will easily be enough for me out of this car, so I am fairly confident a set of cheap heads will be just fine.

Flotek heads are good budget head like 685 for preassembled heads have australian cast I believe and actually assembled in indiana I believe but this is not fact besides I know they are reliable street heads at a good price
