Information I found is,The oval port heads flow 270 cfm in the intake side and 190 cfm on the exhaust side,Thats 70% on the exhaust side so a split pattern camshaft would be needed.If you really know your engines you could make 590 horse power or probably a lot less with all the right parts.Thats using a .600 lift cam.
the peanut ports flow 225/160 for the 156 heads and 235/150-165 for the 236 peanut heads,so 450 horse power maybe,,,not worth using in a performance car.
