Try contacting engine machine shops in your area, sometimes those places have common heads on the shelf ready to go for a good price.
Pretty much any TBI head will work. the biggest diff was in `86 when the carbs were phased out. if you use an older head the center two bolt on the intake on each side don't fit right.
