with a stock cam 185's will most likely clear.. but why stay stock with the cam...if you wish a custom cam can be designed to be used with 185's on a stock bottom end ..otherwise 165's may be a better option.....you'll need gaskets and if your staying emissions compliant afr heads with the smog holes at the back of the heads and exhaust cross overs

You technically dont need the 185s for a 331. They just help it to come alive better! Heck stock heads would work on a 331, but they would really limit it as far as power output. I would say go with the 185s if you can afford them, and get a nice big cam. If its a 331, then the pistons should be notched enough to run almost whatever you like.
