Aftermarket cylinder heads?

Got a sick 6.0 not mine a buddy but it's been dumping out coolant got it tore down and new gaskets and studs ordered but just heard back from machine shop heads are cracked. New ford heads are 1405 a piece. What are our aftermarket options for a bolt on head prferrably where factory five piece gaskets can be used. Figured if already spending money would rather get a couple more ponies while we are at it.

Yes, what ever you do, NEVER FIRE RING YOUR HEADS!

Way too many people have had those things fail from not being machined properly and not crushing, all sorts of problems.

You should be able to get in contact with some aftermarket guys like Eric at Innovative or Tadd at Elite and have them get a set of heads for you. I know that a few guys have picked them up for around $600-$800 a side.

Performance: SCT Xcal-Innovative Diesel, 4" Turbo Back Exhaust no muffler and kitty missing, Spearco IC, ID Power Elbow, AFe Stg. II Intake, 03 Turbo.
