Dart pro 1 OP or brodix race rites oval ports

Hey all, I am finishing up a little 489 build and it's time for cylinder heads. I had planned on the dart pro ones but they are just a bit more then I want to pay. The brodix race rites seem like a good choice that are about 500 cheaper per head.
My goal is 600hp/600tq for this engine. I'll be running a full roller voodoo cam. And fuel injection.
Any thoughts? Or other decent oval ports for around 1200 per head?

I was looking at the gmpp heads.

The afrs I was looking at was a whole extra grand.

Are the race rites you have worked over?
Otherwise what's the advantage of just buying them from summit or jegs versus Mike?

Also I would be interested to hear the quick specs of your whole build, cam specs/ compression, etc. As mine isn't quite done yet.

No extra work except smoothing them out in the intake ports theres a lip after the CNC in the opening. I went with CNC chambers.
He can order then with valve seals on the exhaust from summit or jegs they only have on the intake. When I bought my heads(actually have bought two sets) he was cheaper and have better customer service.

Mike adds value by knowing all the little options available that aren't generally known. He's helped me get stuff just right several times. usually gets better prices too.

Re: Dart pro 1 OP or brodix race rites oval ports

I see wolfplace lurking. I wonder if he has anything to add? I'm not ready to pull the trigger on heads today. I got to get through the holidays first.
So I got some time.
