06 6.0L cylinder head replacement

Went to the Ford dealer to have my #7 injector replaced, been bad for a few weeks now. 122,000 miles so out of pocket. Found fuel in the coolant overflow. Didn't bother to replace injector due to tearing the top of the motor apart again. Don't know if it's one or both, have to do pressure tests. SO......who can I get new heads from? Can't find them on the internet. Also is the extra $$ worth having them ported and polished? And who should I contact for that?
I was going to dump the truck and get a replacement, but I owe more then a trade in, so it's cheaper to fix it.
Was going to call Ford and *****, but figured it was just a waste of time.
Thanks for the help. Ryan

If you are getting fuel in the coolant, than its probly the injector cups. As far as porting the heads I dont think I would if its just stock.

The engine is all stock, never been a wrench in it (yet). If the cups are bad, I still gotta pull the heads off right?
Thanks.

Thanks. Getting down to the wire now, it should be going in the shop here in the next two weeks. Found Odessa cylinder head in Clearwater FL sells aftermarkets for $600. ea and remans for $450 ea. Both have a 12 month unlimited mileage warranty. But I will check out Liberator as well.
@460+, if the cups are bad it's easier to change the heads. The 6.0 is vastly different from the 7.3, where you could change them more easily.
