Aluminum heads?!

I am thinking about switching out the heads when i get my twin turbo setup rolling (heh gotta keeps saving money and then gonna try to do everything at once!), would Twisted Wedge aluminum heads be a good choice, or how about some AFR heads? what do you guys think?

Do a here for the best heads to use.

I would personally go with the AFR's as I feel they are the best heads out there today.

well mostly i am was just wondering if aluminum ones would be ok or not, i'd heard from ppl that the turbos make too much heat and to bad things to the heads?

edit: heh sorry about my first post, just re-read it, it does sound like i wanted to know which heads would be best!

Do some TFS TW heads or Edelbrock Victor 5.0 heads.

it's hard to search when all the good tech got lost in a freak DB accident

Tyler, As for the aluminum heads you'll be fine, infact you'll be better off because they help get the heat out of the chamber better to help keep detonation at bay. TW's, AFR's, hell even GT-40X would be fine for what you're doing with the stock block and all.

thx Eric heh i've been burning oil lately *cringe* so i was thinking maybe i could get some aluminum heads (if valves are the culprit) and that would solve the oil problem, and get me started onto my turbo mods! i still gotta check to see if its the valves or not, but i may just get alumiunum heads anyways if i can afford them, can always use more power!

Edit: damn my spelling! damn it all!
