Dart BBC Aluminum Heads

Hello,
I purchased a set of the Dart BBC PRo 1 Aluminum heads and was wondering if anyone has any suggetions or input on gaskets,bolts,and spark plugs. Like which type of plugs,gaskets, should anti seize be used on them,etc. Also if you bought a set of aluminum heads is there anything you would have done differently or any advice to prolong the life of the heads?
Thanks

You should have a spec sheet with the heads with all that information on it. It comes with the heads.

What cc intake runners do you have? And what cubic inch motor are you installing them on? How much compression are you running?

I have the spec sheet but I was just wondering if anyone that uses aluminum heads has any do's or don't, basically I am just trying to learn from someone else's problems and knowledge.
The engine is a 454 bored .060 over with .340 dome pistons, the heads are 355 cfm.

There are no special instructions except head bolts have to have washers, and use anti sieze on spark plugs. The 355 intake runners are very large for a street car, but other than that they will be fine.

Also, when buying head gaskets make sure they are for aluminum heads.
