I pulled the motor out of a 69' telephone truck, Mexican 302 block, standard bore that i have plans for but I have never seen the TE heads before, I was told they are similar to 69'/70' 351W heads. Probably boat anchors but I thought I'd ask anyway. Any thing special about these?

The T stands for Truck. They have something like 0.4 of a point more compression than regular 2 barrel heads of the same era. I had a 70 F100 and a 71 F100 with 302's, both off them had these heads.

When I got the 302 rebuilt for the 71, instead of having the 69 truck heads rebuilt I got a good deal on a set of E7 heads. Slightly less compression, but they didn't need any work. Probably saved a hundred or so going that way.
