How good are they? how many miles are on them? Do they need any machining or valve work done? All have a bearing on what to pay for them.

You could search Ebay and compare some prices. Expect to pay a little more at the salvage yard than at ebay. If it was cheaper to go to the salvage yard then folks wouldn't go to ebay. (usually, not always)

With things like heads and intakes you really do pay for quality. I agree with traveler, call them up and ask how much they would want for them after you pull them from the yard, and than compare to what you can find on ebay. Just keep in mind the condition of them, how many miles are on them, and whether or not they will need to be machined after you get them.

Also if you do pull them from a salvage yard be sure to use the proper untightening method to avoid warping the aluminum heads, nothing like getting something that had nothing wrong with it and finding out you screwed it up taking it off the wrong way.

Also if your getting your intake from a junkyard be sure to carefully inspect the rear nipple of the manifold for any sign of leaking or cracking and if it has a regular plastic crossover in the front avoid it entirely.

Just my $0.02

Definitely check that rear nipple. Mine has a slow leak that drives me crazy. Its not a big enough leak to really motivate me to change manifolds, but its big enough to drain some fluid into the 3-4 spark plug holes and require cleaning out now and then. But then again, I'm naturally lazy.
