Looking at new afr 205s and tw 190 fac(upgraded valve train.pac springs ferra valves ect...).Can buy either new for the same $$$(around $1450).Not looking for every last hp,just want the best quality head for the cash.Will be going on 351w and later a 408,in a 69 mach1 weekend cruiser.I know either will make the hp I'm after,looking more at what you get for the money spent.

There are significant differences in versions of each head you listed. What are the part numbers of the two you are comparing?

The Tfs tw 190 FAC (64cc) are the Tea/fordstrokers #51400015 that come with their upgraded parts.The Afr's 205 is #1450(58cc) that are sale from a couple of Afr distributors for a little less than $1500.Heard different stories on quality about both.Looking for the best long term investment,not just hp.I almost bought new Edel. Rpms,but decided to budget some extra cash for better heads.

I ended up going with a set of Ford motorsport Z304 heads that were brand new, ported, never on a motor I scored for 1K off Craigslist.

I have no concerns about quality with either. The greatest impacts to durability and longevity will be with correct setup on the engine, and tuning.
