    Personally I get the stock head cut to the compression you want.

    I haven't heard of a stock head cracking. Take pictures of head. If its not in bad shape send it Lowell for cutting. He does extremely good work.

    I will never buy another Riva aftermarket head again... problems with castings leaking externally and just overall poor quality control

    i agree on that

    iv seen ada racing one peice heads as well that are very nice


    but for much cheaper the stock head getting milled is a very good option
