Excuse my ignorance, but what benefit does such a head offer?  Granted it
is lighter in weight.  But beyond that, what other benefit is there over a
new/rebuilt cast iron head.  Seems like I recall some problems with
aluminum heads on cast iron blocks, but I may be mistaken there.  As i
prepare to have my head rebuilt this off season, inquiring minds want to know.
