It would pretty much be pointless if they are stock.

If you want a cheap head upgrade look at the gt40 heads.

+1 It would take a good bit of work to make them worthwhile and by the time you got done the money would be better spent on the GT40's or some aftermarket heads.

Sounds like they would be worth it then. Make sure you check PTV if you're going to use the f cam.

The f cam is a good cam and streetable. The lift of it brings the valves close to the pistons. You may need to have the cam degreed or flycut your pistons to prevent contact.

Those heads ought to be a nice step up then. The e cam is a good choice, same figures as the f cam with less lift.

The e cam requires no piston modification where the f does. I'd go with the e cam it's a good all around street/performance cam.
