That means those heads are a joke on that setup! There are too many cheap aftermarkets to waste ur time on that. Use the edelbrock perf 5.8! Since you wont need anything more.

Venomantidote95, I would only use Performer heads if it was a non-stroker 351...the RPMs tho, not the straight Performers. If it were a stroker then I'd go with something better like AFR's...

spitefire1, those heads are nowhere near being optimal for a boosted 351. And they're going to severely lmit the cam you can use. Go with something aftermarket...

Venomantidote95, didn't mean to offend you there. I did read your post and there was nothing to indicate you were talking about anything other than heads. Performer heads are also known as Performer 5.0/5.8 in mags. Anyway, slight miscommunication is all...
