Re: Help selecting heads for my 496
Mine D2k's at 551hp at 5500 rpm and 579 t at 4500 rpm w/ just about 9.8 to 1 CR, a CC 282S solid cam, a 3310-2 and a Strip Dom and cheap, 1.75" dia, 4-tube, long headers uncorked.
Just have cast-iron, 2.19"/1.88" Merlin heads on her b/c I was afraid of getting hosed locally to rebuild my good -781's.
I call her my great big "Tow-Truck" motor b/c I'm just a cam away from being able to work her in a Duelie!!
And thx to UDHarold, his modern custom flat tappet solid lifter cam is in my closet for when I want MORE POWER!!
It's 278/249/161, 110/106, .618" and need's .018" lash on both sides! I wanted a solid cam like CC's great old 288AR solid street roller and Harold came through!!
