Maybe 'that' head needs a higher octane if nothing else is wrong. A ping or knock when accelerating?

That's a good price for a complete head. I'm skeptical that all the valves/lifters/rockers/springs/clips/cam are new too though.

Have you mailed back your 'old' one yet? If not consider keeping it and finding a complete salvaged/damaged one to mail back - if they take damaged heads.
