making 325-350hp out of a 327 will be easy due to the fact that 327's like RPM's 350tq is still very possible.

as far as head flow i would look for a head that flows 240+@ .500" lift and has a good consistante increase from .300" lift up, stock vortecs will fall slightly short of this but not by much, but the RHS 170 heads will be right on the money
