yah! thats what i was thinking! :) who makes a good head? I've seen alot of different kinds, but dont know nothing about them. :| All I've been told is if you port them, they will make more power for the motor.

The December 2010 issue of Hot VWs compares 18 after market heads. It's a starting point.

Also Roger @ Bethany Imports has done some machine work for me in the past, No complaints from me so far :D

To get 'proper' P&P heads they need to be flow benched, to ensure that each are the same, and that the mods made are actually helpful, and not causing excessive turbulence.
It looks like steve tims heads and low bugget are pretty reasonable.

I can get stock and oversized valved heads cheap but are not P&P.
