Not saying better becasue there's mroe to a head than flow figures, but if you like to play flow numbers, they come close for a lot less cash.
Another way to look at it is that a set or prepped 4V closed C heads is going to be cheaper (a bit, not a lot) than a set of good aftermarket W heads - and have the potential to run a lot harder while still running fine to the burger cruise night. In spite of weighing 20+ lbs more each. If you compare what you can do with a 4V closed head vs the cash outlay for a set of even Edelbrock aluminum C heads - well, I'll be hanging on to my outa date old stockers for a while longer LOL.
This is exactly what I say too.
