New heads

Looks like a new set of heads are in my future. I've tried searching this on my own but have no idea where to start. I'm hoping someone could give me a little direction as to what the best set of heads would be for a stock 327 engine. Please keep in mind that I have NO experience or knowledge at all with regards to heads. Thanks in advance for you help.

Re: New heads

For a stock type build, these are decent heads (World S/R):

I'm currently using them in a 327/TH350 with Edelbrock Performer intake, SMI Q-Jet carb, Dynomax headers going to X-pipe, 3.36 Positraction axle.

Some head specs similar to the those used in the "275 HP" 327s available in first gen Camaros.

Re: New heads

Vortec heads, have them on my 327, but you will need a vortec intake and different rocker arms, unless you install screw in studs and guideplates on the vortec heads.

Agreed. Instant 40 HP increase with no other mods. The "different rockers" get the stock Vortec self-aligning rockers and don't worry about them. Every PU, Suburban and Tahoe has them and most are running great at 200k miles on them.
