I have a set of the FR500 heads - bought them bare. Got tired of "soon" to happen from FRPP for cams, valvetrain, and intake. So I picked up a set of SHM cams, ModMax valves and springs, and am having them p/p by TheGame. Am patiently waiting to get them back and install. I will post dyno results when it's back together. Currently at 295 rwhp and hoping for 350+ rwhp.
If you are really interested, go ahead with the bare heads and if you don't want to wait for soon (first time I heard "soon"was 9/00 and all the parts are yet to be available. There are many choices including your stock cams and valvetrain, but that limits the benefit of the heads. Cams from Crane, HP, SHM, etc and valve components are available. Build them up and forget about "soon".
