One for the "Blue Oval" crowd. 8)
Theres been a set of Boss 429 heads for sale for about 6 months right here in Surrey. Price isn't horribly out of line either.

I just checked, they are still on eBay $3995 US asking price, open to offers, that includes valves, titanium retainers and springs. Figure I could probably piece a motor together for around ten large? It just keeps haunting me! I know who it is, he is about 8 miles from my place, I should call him up and offer him 4K CDN, I could swing that. I could use my 6-71 and pick up another 4500, Bet he'd bite...
Go for it George! :D

It's the price of the rockers and stands that puts me off. Man, that's some SERIOUS Ching! By the time I buy the heads, rockers and valve covers, it's around $7500-8000 CDN, if I spent that on the FE, I could get a pair of CNC ported BBM medium risers, a re-pop tunnel wedge and also step up to a big roller, I could make around 750 hp with a set-up like that. The Boss might have more wow factor, but it wouldn't match those power numbers unless I pumped a LOT of money into it.
