    Corto: Hello.

    Miller3, I have no idea why, but I never got a notification for your message back in August; I'm assuming you figured this out by now.
    Personally, there's no way I'd go with heads as small as 165cc on a 350. Get a head with a good, fast port and go slightly bigger than your RPM to get a bit more flow and keep the torque up with an appropriate cam, CR, and exhaust system for your goals, IMO. Then if you want more HP you're not head-limited and you can just put in a bigger cam.

    Example: I went with Profiler 195cc heads for a 350 that will top out at 6,000 RPM because of my cam and long-runner intake; the cross-sectional area of 180cc or 185cc head would've been more "ideal" for a 350 @ under 6,000 RPM, but I'm still getting great torque by having a static CR of 10.2:1, an aggressive lobed roller cam, and tri-y exhaust on the smallish side for my HP. Then when the bottom-end needs a rebuild, I can put in a 383 stroker kit and my 195cc heads are then ideal.

    A few weeks back you ran some numbers on different HP to head combinations.

    Can you run two others for me:

    Dart Iron Eagle 180cc heads and Dart SS 165cc heads?

    Can you run them with stock gasket and thin? With Cam in stock position and then advanced 2 degrees, and then finally with 1.6 rockers?

    This is the set up my engine builder recommended as this car will rarely see anything in the 5000-5500 rev range.

    Thanks much
