Do not drill the heads. Get the brackets from Chevrolet Steel Mounting Brackets

or fab your own.

vortec heads would be ideal. thats all i hear about. to be honest i was considering it. i just didnt feel like spending another $150 for valve cover adapters considering i just got new valve covers, and buying a new intake. I figured choosing the camel backs would be the best option other than vortecs and aftermarket heads, after all this is just a street cruiser.

And not be confused i was wondering the max lift on the cam with the camel backs? any clearance issues?

Don't ask. Dissassemble and eheck for your self. aprox .480" on thie with stock rockers.
The pressed in studs tend to come out on those too.

When nicely ported they make very very good power.

Help With Heads!

You take a head off. Then take some modeling clay about 1/4" thick place on top of the pistons. Reassembly the head and adjust the valves. Turn the engine over a couple of revolutions. Remove the head and measure the thickness of the clay where the imprint of the valve is. Clearance should be .080 intake, .100 on exhaust.
