Post Another Head question

I plan on building a 383 but in the mean time I want to put a few bandaids on my 350, it has 4000 miles on it and runs great but I want to get a little more out of it. It's a daily driver and I get on it pretty good, it won't see the track but I do get into Highway races every now and then (only when safe) I'm thinking Heads are next, specs-750 Q Jet, Victor Jr Intake, HEI, 296/308 D 500/518 L Cam, .60 bore, Domed Hyper 9.5-1 Pistons 10-10 Crank, TH350 3000 stall, new stock everything else. The heads are ported stock.
If this were your engine which heads would you put on?

What kind of heads are on there now? You say they are ported stock, but that could mean a lot of things. Do you know the combustion chamber size? Any idea on the casting number? If they are open chamber heads (76cc) I would look for a set of closed chamber 64cc heads to put on there. You may run in to some problems with detonation. We need more information as to what you are running now to help you.

Thats to much cam for 9.5:1 compression you need 11.1 compression , you don't want to over cam a engine. Isky maga 232/232 @.050 Dur. 485/485 lift will run with 9.5:1.

I was told by the builder that they were 76cc. I know that cam is huge but the tech guys at Crower suggested that one, it sounds great and runs like a scalded cat but I can tell it's not giving me as much power as it could. This motor is only a temp, it's going to ba a while before I get the stroker built.
