If staying NA, heads and cam are all where your power is. They should complement each other. How far you wanna go is all up to you. How many of these are you gonna build? If you do go all-out on this one and still end up building again later, it's likely the heads will be transferable to that build. Or an easy sell if not or not wanted.
Yep. My thoughts exactly but I don't see myself doing this again. Heck, you never know.

Depending on the hour and the day - I've been leaning towards the heads from TSP. But wow - the price.
Yeah, they’re spendy. But I was really happy to have them assembled and ready to go with new everything, titanium retainers, dual springs, new valves, seals, etc.. the head assembly is something I’ll eventually want to learn / do myself, but wasn’t in the cards for this round.

Still here and continuing to put away some funds for my heads. Unfortunately, that process has slowed as we focused on our Beagle the last couple of weeks.

On a good news front - my repaired crankshaft is on the way back to and should arrive tomorrow,. Unfortunately, my wife and I received some bad news on Tuesday. A CT scan of our 14 year old Beagle (my little buddy) indicates he has cancer. Heading off to an oncologist next week to determine type, if its treatable or the alternative I'm not ready for yet.
Update. After numerous additional tests and appointments we have been told that our Beagle's cancer is not treatable. After several weeks of medication adjustments we have finally found the solution set that allows him exceptional comfort and he is moving around great and is still such a happy dog. At the end of the day, he lays at my feet until it is time for bed. Boy, I'm going to miss my little friend.

Oh man so sorry to hear that Bob. I went through cancer with my last dog, he had surgeries to remove it but in the end the cancer won. It’s so ******* a person as well as our fur buddy. I’m glad to hear he’s comfortable, he’s a lucky dog to have such good people.

Thank you Mark. It's hard, as you know, to go through but so happy for the happiness and love he has brought these past 14 years - and still does today. Molly, our other dog knows something is wrong because she constantly licks him and lays by his side all the time - it brings tears to our eyes.
