Post About to get set of 882's redone...suggestions?

Well, I am gonna get Z28 springs put on them.

Gonna have them cleaned up and magnafluxed and all that.


You guys have any comments or suggestions? Something else I should have done to them? Trying to keep it as cheap as possible. Port job is out...cuz $350 for a port job is more then I want to spend..

Th exhaust side of these heads are the weakest point, if you can afford just the bowls than your power ahead. If not then just the springs will net you a reliable(if you don't overheat them) 300 horse machine with the right cam selection.

Oh yeah, they don't flow well above .450 stock untouched so any more than that will be overkill.

GOOD Luck with them. They are one of my favorites for cheap.

Yea,

My cam is .464" lift but I doubt Ill see much more then .400" on the street anyway.

Yea, i checked the flow numbers and they seem to do pretty good up to .400". They are the matching heads to my block that I built. Just need to get it done, so I am using them. Good budget head and I already have them.

Just to clear up an apparent misconception....Cam lift is not dynamic. It is the same at idle as it is at 5000RPM.

I'm with 1bad80. just don't try an over kill your first time in a head. keep it a simple bowl blend and gasket match. opening them up alot probably wouldn't be worth it anyway with that cam.

Might want to think about getting the rocker studs pinned too and $350 for a simple pocket port is somebody ripping you off.

I am with the other guys on the port job. Cylinder head porting is something any hotrodder should try. After I learned, I give every set a pocket port and gasket match at least. Go for it.

$350 might be a little high for a pocket porting, but if they are doing gasket match also or anything else it is not bad at all. Many people pay $1000 for a race port job. You gotta figure $50 per hour or so.

Its not had to redo the rocker studs either. I wrote a post on how to do it. I'll have to find it or redo it for you. Its very easy and worth a try yourself.

Yea,
