    I have to agree. Need to know what type of motor your working with to help you out more. But to answer your question stock heads will be fine on a rebuilt bottom end assuming the heads are in good working order (good valve guide, valve seats, springs, seals, and rockers) Just don't try and reuse any gaskets.

    Stock heads will work for sure, but make sure what they came off of....like NO 305 heads on a 350 block!
