Post After market heads

Hi everyone. Are Dart heads a good aftermarket head. i am looking at a set at Summit racing with 215cc intake runners and 205/160 valves. Would these flow well on a 383??

umm. is it a race car. those are pretty big heads for a street car, i think you will be dissapointed if you use them on the street as you will loose low end torque. Something like 190-200cc intake ports would be my limit for the street with a 383.

Hopefully a little of both but mostly strip,Its going in a 88 camaro. Its got a completely forged bottom end, 636/603 gross lift roller cam. On 64cc chamber heads it should have around 10.5 compression so it will be running on racing fuel but i do plan on driving it arould some. Do you think i should step back and go with a 200 cc head with 202/160 valves. I am also planing on spraying this motor with 250 shots.

LOL, thanks for the imput mustang66maniac, I hope it runs as hard as it sounds, lol. This is the first hot rod motor i have done by myself, I just dont know much about heads, I have looked at AFR and trickflow as well as the Dart heads. Needless to say the Darts are way more affordable.
