I would run them. My 02 ported PI heads are decked .030.
The price is good. The only thing I dont like about them is it looks
like they have stock valves. But, I'd still run them.

I have a terminator short block, Looking to get a set of ported heads and some blower cams, I have a vortech v2. Not sure how much boost i can squeeze out of the blower, might do an 8 rib pulley swap. So y2k i should be fine with stock valves? I think I will offer him 800$ shipped?

Yes. The stock valve doesnt give as much clearance for ptv as a aftermarket valve.

Maybe its just poor pics but that looks like a sloppy DIY port job. Definitely doesn't look like CNC to me. If it is a DIY then that would explain the stock valves when nearly every reputable worked heads would have had bigger valves.

Gasket matching is not porting. Never heard anyone say "CNC gasket matched" before this.

Is he saying MMR did everything? Any paperwork?

That's a lot of crust in the water port for something that supposedly has 300 miles on it since all that work.

SAVE YOUR MONEY AND BUY TFS HEADS.

THATS WAY TO EXPENSIVE FOR SOME CRAPPY WORK PORTED STOCK HEADS.

Look around you see nicley dont up stock heads for 700-800 all the time. They dont have much resale anymore since TFS heads flooded the market... and for good reason. The best ported PI head wont even touch a TFS head out of the box.

Oh my, that's not MMR heads I have never seen them do any work like that before if anything that will slow down the flow with all those jagged edges. Keep looking cause those heads suck.

It depends what your wanting to do. This is a centri car? Whats the current compression and piston dish size? How much peak beat are you running?

I don't like oem ford MLS head gaskets... never have. I pretty much exclusively use the standard fel pro MLS head gaskets. They have a thicker rubber coating in the exterior of the gasket which greatly reduces oil seepage in the event that the decks are not perfect. I've never lost a fel pro head gasket and I'm pushing 21lbs. You can buy them at autozone.

Part number 9790-PT2 and 9792-PT2.... one part number for each side.

If I need a special head gasket or I want something more exotic then it's always cometic.... you're taking 300 for cometic gaskets vs 90 for fel pro so you better be damn sure you need a special head gasket before you go wasting all that money lol

I tell people that if u r porting at home then less is more. Think those heads would flow less then stock. I could never try to sell heads like that I would be imbarist. I don't know any port shop putting out crap like that.
Head gaskets I use felpro with copper coat on my tt cobra

ARP Head studs are a good idea... torque with ARP lube or moly lube. It comes with the kit... Dont get my comment wrong bout OEM head gaskets. You wont blow one out any easier than a fel pro. The reason I dont like them is because they only have a very very thin viton covering on the gasket and will seep oil alot easier than fel pro gaskets which have a thicker and more tacky coating. If you ever notice you will find alot 4.6 Mustangs (especially 2 valve) will leak oil into the valley pan (area under the intake manifold) they will also have alot of dust accumulated on the sides of the block. This is becase oil of oil seepage between the head and the block. Ford recalled alot of them. I have pulled motors down that were leaking pretty bad, cleanen the decks with brake cleaner and threw them back together with fel pros and they never leak again... If I do use OEM MLS gaskets I spray them with copper coat which provides much better sealing against oil seepage. You just have to be careful and spray to 2 or 3 light even coats. I actually do that on alot of head gasket even on pushrod motors and have always had good results.
