Default 351W build for a 1968 Coupe.

After pricing a couple different local builds and a crate engine, I have decided to just go ahead and build the 351W roller block I have setting in the garage. It has already been cleaned and bored .0030. I was going to build it for my 95 Bronco but the 68 Mustang 302 motor has a bad vibration and I want it to have a little more engine in it anyway and that vibration is a good excuse to pull it. I have been chasing posts for a few days and decided to see I could get a few suggestions on some heads and an intake. I have been thinking about AFR 195. I know everyone will have a different opinion but that is what this is all about. Getting ideas and opinions. Let me hear your thoughts please.

Head selection really depends on what power level you are looking at? What does the rest of your drivetrain consist of? Check your roller block over carefully..They often have cracks in the lifter valley area.

AFR Renegade 185s flow close to 300cfm and can support 500hp for $1500/pr. That's what I chose.
