on the front, side, of the head itself will have 3 bars casted into it III

yea and when you get some gt40's, you should have them planed down .030 to make sure they are flat and to have a good mating surface and gain some compression back. and you should get a valve job, valve seals, valve guides, springs(to match the cam you're using) since most likely the heads you'll be picking up will have quite a few miles on them.


you can get away without doing most of that...but it'd be a good idea to have it done and start with a fresh head since you are trying to gain performance out of them.

wrench n go gets them all the time. you just need to look. that or check out sams riverside. ive called a couple times but they know what they are used for so they charge a pretty penny.


just save your money and buy some RHS or windsor JR heads if your on a budget and dont mind iron.
