What heads are you going to use?

He said make a offer, but im not sure what to offer. If i bought it id like to do a more agressive cam, springs, and probably a parker funnel web. Not sure yet though...

I helped this guy do a very close clone to my Cleveland in my white car. We did most of the build for him over the phone. Trust me, my car, and his, just simply Rocks!

If you look in the Video of the car idling you will see factory heads, factory block(cleveland is a small block 9.2" deck) it has stock rods and crankshaft, a flat solid cam, a Funnel Web intake and 9.8 to 1 pump gas compression.

Results? 10 second street car on engine.

Thats a sick motor! Are you guys running 2v heads? Any machine work done to them? What cam?

Also as far as the swap goes, whats everything i would need? Headers, pan/pickup, can i use the solid motor mounts that are on my 306 or would i need to buy new motor mounts?
