Default Buy or keep looking

I can buy a set of old AFR 220 heads that are fresh out of the machine shop with new Ferrea valves and no run time for $750.

Heads only have setup springs on them so I will need to buy springs.

I know the new heads flow better than the old ones and require shaft rockers (which I have a set of T&D 1.5's)

Sound like a decent deal or should I keep looking

These will be going on my 406 sbc build with a .645/6.50 lift cam

Ran the 220's somewhere in the early 90's and paid considerably more for them, back then. They're still a good 23 piece & should do well with that 406.
