Depends on what type you are after. Edelbrocks can be found at www.vpw.com.au Trickflows and AFR's from www.highperformanceworld.com.au

Re: 5.0l aluminum heads

Unless you have a hi-rpm 5 litre i think they will be a little big for your cubes....I am sure one of the guys on here will have a comment on them.
They are world products windsor snr's

Re: 5.0l aluminum heads

unfortunetly yes stock manifolds, cast iron heads and headers. however i fitted the gas research system to it there throttle body converter and lamba sensor. surprisingly it did not lose power at all so i decided since it had done 180000k's to freshen it up a little and see if i can't squeze a lttle more out of it.

Re: 5.0l aluminum heads

If it's all stock then, you will want to at least change the intake manifold and headers along with the heads. Also look at an AU type setup, GT40P heads and explorer intake, you will probably get both cheaper than just a set of alluminium heads and still get good results.

Re: 5.0l aluminum heads

They come up every now and then on these forums, otherwise contact places like Mick Webb SVO or Herrod's to see if they have got any left. Slipper has an AU manifold, TB and 200kw cam up for sale, don't know if it has been sold yet though. Expect to pay $1000-1200 for the heads and around $600 for the manifold.
