there is a set of brodix track 1 heads on ebay and i went to brodix.com and read the specs and they reccomend a minimum of 11.5 compression. the heads also have some epoxy in the intake ports. i am going to have about 9.5 compression in a street strip 68? should i try and get these or stay away?

Unless you personally know and trust the person who did the epoxy work, I would avoid thoses heads. I wonder if the epoxy is really a repair and not a mod.
Windsor heads are not generally so large in port volume that they require epoxy anywhere.
Also avoid any one who claims "Stage III" porting by some unknown company but has not real data (like a flow sheet). Sort of like a 3/4 race cam......

I've had good luck buying used TFS and AFR heads on ebay. If there's no damage and the seller is honest, I would say it's a good deal if they come with the springs, studs, and guide plates.
