Nobody said SCJ heads aren't decent heads, or that they can't make good power, but....
Valvejobs aren't free
Replacing worn valve-springs, guides, etc. isn't free
Quality port work certainly isn't free
Transporting parts to and from people isn't free
The hassle of coordinating all those efforts, and the time involved is something to consider. I find it unlikely that there's anything to be saved by jumping through all the hoops to make SCJ heads perform, and no matter how much you rub on them, they're not going to perform as well as the AFR's, at least not without a custom manifold, and spending far in excess of what you would by bolting on a better set of heads.
If the OP prefers to jump through all the hoops to get more performance out of his SCJ's, that's fine. I was just presenting an option that faster/easier/better, and probably cheaper.
