I'm building a low buck 383 and found a set of Pro Topline heads on craigslist for a good deal. The only thing that worries me is the fact that they are 235cc intake runners. Will that kill my bottom end when coupled with an Edelbrock High Flow Tpi base and Accel intake runners? I have chosen a comp cams 08-502-8 grind cam based on their recommendation. The heads also have ridiculously huge 2.08/1.60 valves, don't know if that factors in at all. Any help greatly appreciated as usual. Thanks gd
I got a good deal on my high flow baseplate so I hate to walk away from the tpi at this point. I'm hoping to stumble across some used heads on craigslist/corvette forum/through a friend, if not I'll probably go with either Edelbrock Performer 185's or perhaps those cheapie Procomp 190's.
Wouldnt use those Pro nothings if you gave them to me.
Darts are a good as cast head
the 180s actually pour to 191 they would work.
Thin they have an SHP head which is a decent performance/buck head.
Edelbrock has a number of different heads that could fit your app.
Stay away from the real cheapie heads out there. Know youre on a budget but with heads experimenting with off brands usually results in $$ and a teardown.
