If it won't hurt me I think I'd rather have something I can grow into if I get the itch for more power and find some used aluminum heads. As long as I'm not losing power compared to my RV cam by...

Looks like it's gone now, or I can't find it. Thanks for the heads up though!

On that note though, after some thought I think it will be best for me to stick with my stock heads and get them...

And on Summit...

Thanks. Are the ARP bolts needed or a recommendation? Trying to trim my budget.

Thanks guys, I'll look into full roller options but will likely just go for the roller tips with this setup.

I just checked my door tag when I got home, I was wrong, the car has a 3:25:1 rear end. Would these lower gears mean I would need a cam that would make more torque to get off the line? I eventually...

I'd like to make power in the low to mid range since it will be performance street driver.

Those AFR heads practically much max out my budget alone, but they do seem fantastic. I think that's beyond what I'm going for power-wise as well. I'm not anxious to find the weak spots with the...

The argument I've always heard between the two is the 351c has the better stock heads, but the 351w has a better block. If you're using a stock block and heads you will make a bunch more power out...
