Default HEAD ISSUES

SOME WOULD SAY WHY CHANGE SOMETHING OUT WHEN ITS WORKING WELL....I HAVE A 347 STROKER MOTOR CURRENTLY IT HAS WORLD WINDSOR JR HEADS ON IT A 547 LIFT CAM , I FEEL LIKE THE MOTOR IS NOT AT ITS FULL POTENTIAL WITH THESE HEADS THEYR ONLY 180CC. I WAS THINKING OF GOING TO RHS 200CC HEADS WILL THIS MAKE ENOUGH OF A DIFFERENCE TO WARRANT THE MONEY SPENT?

ITS ON A 67 MUSTANG 355 POSI, BUILT C4, 2500 STALL, INTAKE IS A WORLD RPM TYPE BY LOOKS AND CURRENTLY 770 STREET AVENGER CARB...
ANY IDEAS APPRECIATED, ID SAY IM PUSHING AROUND 400 TO 420HP CURRENTLY WOULD LIKE TO SEE A 50HP GAIN IF POSS BY CHANGING HEADS AND INTAKE....MAYBE IM DREAMING

I suggest not typing in caps, it's incredibly annoying.

I've been porting heads and building engines for more than 25yrs. but have been doing NASCAR exclusively for the last 15-20yrs. I did a little research on those heads you listed. I would say that the heads you have are a little small and the RHS head would help but you won't see a 50HP gain, more than likely not anywhere near that. Even with a fully ported set of heads you would be lucky to see a 30HP gain.
Check out the Coyote 5.0 thread I picked those up about 30CFM and were hoping we see a 20HP gain.
Just my .02 cents.
