Sorry to tell you this, but Casting #882 (last three digits) cylinder heads are smog heads and are very prone to cracking. Also if you look at the exhaust crossover port you will find that they actually split and go to both center cylinder exhaust ports. This design makes the heads prone to run hot. This was good for increased engine tempatures for emissions and reduced hydrocarbons in the exhaust. However, this casting design is probably not very good for performance applications.
