It will depend on the heads and cam. Head with bigger valves and a cam with certain timing can result in issues.

Update. As I thought but was ignoring, pulled the heads valves weren't seating properly. Game over for now. So time to get really starter. Metal work, suspension, interior, and motor build.

I'm trying to get a real parts list together so I can start buying parts. After pulling the heads, the rotating assembly seems mint. No scoring on the cylinder walls, rotates so easily without those clogged valves.

Plans were a set of 185cc AFR Heads like suggested. After all the research and comments and reviews I see on them its too hard to pass up. It also seems everyone like the Lunati Voodoo cam to go with it? Hearing tons of good reviews on these as well. Just wondering what the different size chambers mean and what the difference in the cams are. I'm looking at the street version, and the only difference I see is 300 rpm in the power band, is this correct?

I'll be pairing all of this with either my 600cfm holley carb or ill go up to a 750 if needed. Already have hooker long tubes and a pro comp manifold. Motor is going to a friend who builds motors and is specialty is ford sb's. It'll get forged internals, and a built crank. Just want to make sure my top end will produce.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
