Cool

What modifications are required to bolt on GM's Vortec (1999 76cc) cast iron cylinder heads on an earlier 350 block? Is anybody out there looking for a set of these heads serial#333417369 that are almost new? Will sell for $250.

Vortec heads require the new style intake manifolds. Hold down bolts are straight instead of angled.

The new Vortec style heads are awesome. Commonly known as "the best bang for the buck." I read in an article from one of the high performance mags, that these heads, even with 1.94/1.50 valves, flow better than the World Products Sportsman II heads with 200cc intake runners, and 2.02/1.6 valves! There are two drawbacks to the Vortec heads. You have to run a different intake. I just happen to have an Edelbrock catalog handy. PN#2116 is the Performer. It is basically a stock replacement performance intake. It has an rpm range of idle to 5500 rpm. If you want the high rise dual plane Performer Rpm, Pn#7116. It has an rpm range of idle to 6500rpm. The last time I priced the RPM, it was about $175 through Jegs. The other drawback is if you are running a 400 small block, you have to have steam holes drilled. They also don't have screw in studs. I hope I have been of help.
