have to dig out my cam spec's
Just really looking for info in the heads
Car works good but thought might work better with them.
I have a set of those 462624 heads on my 1980 L-82 Corvette. That was the top of the line head for that year but these are early smog era pieces so they are not as desireable as some of the older heads or aftermarket heads. I will keep them on my car for the sake of originality. If I was building a low budget factory head engine and the heads were free, I would use them. If you want more power than that, you need better heads without question but they cost $. How fast do you want to go? [img]smile.gif[/img]
Expect a full 1 point drop in compression, and softer low end response, with a bit less top end power to boot. The ports on any 624 head I have ever seen have a bad short turn radius on them...nothing a little porting can't fix though. The 083's actually seem to be a pretty fair head.
