hey guys i was looking at the 400hp-425hp build chart and im trying to track down which kind of head i need. the motor came out of 95 f250 and they chart calls for this:
D0VE heads with mild port job and chambers polished
(315ish/180-ish cfm flow @.600)
Intake valve size 2.08
Exhaust valve size 1.65
Stock rockers.

so would these work?:https://jonkaaseracingengines.com/shop/cylinder-heads/kaase-p-51-cylinder-heads/
or is there a cheaper option or can i just use my stock heads.(which im leaning towards not)

The Kaase P-51 heads in the link you posted are overkill. Most economical would be to use Dove heads for a 400-425 hp build. Or pick up a set of used Edelbrocks, TFS 290's, A429 or even Pro-Comps if you prefer aluminum.

The Ford SCJ heads from Summit will require a different intake valve notch in the piston. If you’re doing a complete rebuild including new pistons then you’re fine. If you’re just adding heads to an existing shortblock you’ll need the Edelbrocks or Trickflows because their intake valves use stock production pistons.
