I bought a rebuilt 454. The guy only had the block castin gnumber when I bought it, but told me the heads where of the same year. Im finaly starting to get it all ready and I realize this is what I really have.

I dont have any other information on the setup. It's been rebuilt and I was told it had 10.5 :1 compression, but I think I'm going to have to pull it apart to see what's going on. Im going to pull out the cam to see what's going on in there as well. Though I suppose my question is, shoudl I try to get new heads or are these heads decent enough. It's not going to be a track car or anything, it will be a daily driver sort of car, but Im not plannin on towing stuff here, I plan on getting alot of tickets... what do you think?
