    Aluminum cylinder heads

    I was just answering the OP's initial question. That's all. I have no experience with aftermarket aluminum heads so I don't comment on the production quality of the various manufacturers.

He beat me by a couple of...

    Well, a few years ago I rented and drove two different hybrid cars while traveling. I liked the gas mileage but the gear head in me wanted more horsepower.
