396 heads

Anyone see any problems running these heads with a 396?

Looking for a good head with stock intake and exhaust locations. Thanks

Re: 396 heads

If the car is to be driven on the street 80% of the time i would look in to oval ports over square ports. Better low end TQ which is king on the streets.

Something like these:

Street High-Performance Heads



PERFORMER & PERFORMER RPM 454-O

These oval port heads will support over 540 hp with 9.5:1 compression when used as part of the Total Power Package
Unique oval intake port shape produces flow similar to rectangular ports, but the smaller port size provides excellent seat-of-the-pants performance and crisp throttle response
Semi-open chamber design maximizes efficiency with streetable compression ratios
Smaller-than-stock 11/32" valve stems promote excellent flow and lighter valve weight


PERFORMER 454-O
Chamber Size Intake Port Size Valve Sizes (in/ex) Bare (single) Complete (single)
110cc 290cc 2.19"/1.88" #60469 #60479

Re: 396 heads

Thanks for the info. This will be my first BB build so any help is appreciated.

Here is a edelbrock kit from summit and includes almost everything. I'm not looking to break any records, but just a good street motor.

Also is there any way to tell if the block has been bored in the past?


Thanks
