What would u recommend? I know aluminum is lighter, but I dont have much weight on my front end so I dont believe the extra weight is going too hurt me. I also heard if u live in a colder climate u dont want aluminum because they expand and contract and so forth. Is that true by the way? Whats a good reasonable priced cast iron head that I can get ported for my 351w that I am building.

Windsor Sr or Roush 200s. GT40P's is also an option, but I believe the World products heads flow a lot better out of the box.

Dubz,

I wouldn't worry about it, unless you want 100,00 miles of service out of a daily driver.
