The guys that rebuild the heads are not going to spend the hours it takes to clean and rebuild a head if its "bad", pressure checking the head is all it needs to ensure a good head, then they mill them after the valve job for a fresh surface. They are just as good as a new cast head IMO but way cheaper. Were not driving 300+ HP performace cars that see 6k+ rpm a bunch of times daily, the rebuilt heads are fine. Get the $225 valve only heads from the bay and swap YOUR cam/lifters/rockers over, just be sure to use lots of assembly lube on the cam.
