I have a friend that just put them on a sbc. He was happy with them over the stockers. But I wouldn't trust his opinion cause he's an idiot. Lol. But anyways there seem to not be very many reviews.

But the best I could tell they are a copy of gt40x swirl heads. They also seem to be a "you get what you pay for" type thing. If you don't have much money they may be worth trying.

Here is a good review that I saw.

From the reviews I've read about them they will need to be cleaned up by a machinist to get everything right with them. Seems like they make a great starting point, and you can probably have them ported and polished for about the same price as the big name brands cost.

I agree. But even in there "flashy" condition they are probably still way better than stock. But if it were me, the heads are the biggest hp part of the motor. This is the area you don't mess around.

Very true, I was thinking about getting a set of these to maintain my "budget" build but that just went out the window thanks to a ring.

Re: flow tek

For the amount of work they would need to be worthwhile, these - Ford Racing M-6049-X307 - would be a better choice.
