Yes see, those flow numbers arent bad for a 305 head. But the real problem when using vortec with older EFI systems is in the base. It costs $450 bucks just to complete the combination. It all adds up to too much cash for the performance you get. I would be better off with some worked s/r torquers from world or maybe even the box stock TFS 175cc 23* head. Keep in mind I am simply trying a head and cam package on a LB9 305 for better performance. I choose the vortec head because we all know it flows better at lower lifts, which is where TPI likes to make power and TQ.
