All,
I'm thinking about upgrading the heads on a small block in my wifes el camino. I have no idea what heads to buy. It's driven 98% on the street.

Here's the specs:

.125 dome hypereutectic pistons 0.020 over
Holley 750 model 3310
Edelbrock RPM intake
ported 64cc camel hump heads
100082 - Crane Cams Energizer Cam
Grind Number: 282 H06
Operating Range: 2400-6200 RPM
Duration Advertised: 282° Intake / 282° Exhaust
Duration @ .050'' Lift: 226° Intake / 226° Exhaust
Valve Lift w/1.5 Rockers: .470'' Intake / .470'' Exhaust
Lobe Separation Angle: 106°
Max Lift Angle: 101° ATDC Intake / 111° BTDC Exhaust
Open/Close @.050'' Cam Lift: Intake - 12° BTDC (opens) / 34° ABDC (closes)
Exhaust - 44° BBDC (opens) / 2° ATDC (closes)
1.5 crane full roller rockers.
Turbo 350 trans with a 3200 rpm stall.

Thanks in advanced for you advice.

So with either The AFR's or the Dart heads should I put the valve springs that I have in them? They are the springs specifically designed for the cam.

On the Darts are you thinking the 200cc Intake runner heads?

Thanks

There's SEVERAL different heads available that would make for a NICE upgrade. AFR, TrickFlow, Dart, Profiler, Canfield, Edelbrock, Brodix.......

Just be sure and find out if the Dome pistons you have will fit the chamber type and shape of the new heads!!!!!!!

The older style domes are shaped like the older style "Wedge" combustion chambers and not the newer style "Kidney-bean" shaped chambers. It might be no problem or it might lead to a bad day!!
