Any big block heads will fit.It is the intake that is different.Because the deck is higher it moves the heads up and out making it necessary to use a tall deck intake or a spacer kit at about $100.00 to use a normal intake.It is a good engine but as stated expensive to build.If you could find a set of used heads with smaller combustion chambers and bigger valves this would be the cheapest way to increase torque and horse power. And of course the right cam for your application. Also headers should help because I think the stock exhaust manifolds are pretty restrictive and usually crack after a while of abuse. Also the push rods are longer than a regular BBC and the exhaust and intake push rods are different lengths instead of all the same like a SBC. Hope this helps.
