Hey Jack, told you I'd post up some pictures of my 215's soon as I got them...got busy though lol.
Anyhow, they're in great shape. VERY little cleanup work will be necessary, and even that is a preference, nowhere near a necessity. Lighting in the garage sucked lol so excuse the pictures. The transition from the worked area where they blended the bowls to the seats is actually very smooth, no ridge, the pictures make it look like theres a step. Also, my decks are extremely clean.
Oddly enough, mine DO have the Pro Topline cast near the bottom outside head bolt. I know yours have nothing cast there. Other than that, mine are exactly the same as yours.
All in all the casting's very clean. There's a bit of roughness in the exhaust ports as you can see in one picture. The intake ports are extremely nice. When compared to my friend's RHS heads FROM RHS, there is NO DIFFERENCE. None, nada, zip. We even took some measurements. Port dimensions between heads are AMAZINGLY precise. His also have rough casting in the exhaust. These heads even have the rocker stud holes helicoiled. Many top name heads do not. I was told some of them have porous decks. Mine do not. The decks are very smooth, and the machine work clean. If my Canfield intake quality is rated a 10, I'd consider these an 8-9. All in all I'm very happy with them. Soon as I order my valves, I'll be taking my set down to have a port flowed. 4.030" bore, 1 3/4 or 2" pipe on the exhaust. I will also be having them flow the same port with my Canfield intake bolted on. Can't see it being much of a restriction though =p.
By the way, Livernois only has about 8 sets left. If anyone else wants a set, I'd order them now.
