78Monte, I couldn't agree with you more. The difference between a 350 horsepower stock headed motor and a 375 horse power fancy headed street car ain't that much. Sure in a grudge match on a back road the fancy headed motor will take the lead towards the end but the driver is going to sweat all the way! I've got a set of double humps with large valves and hardned seats and two sets of 993 heads with big valves. I have less money in all three sets of heads than I do in a after market set. Incidently, I think that the very plentyfull and cheap 993 head is a "secret" recipe for a stout more than 350 horse power (with .100" domed pistons and a dirt cheap SSI 224/234 cam)street bruser 350. It will do very nicely in a 3.73 geared Camaro and the real nice thing is you'll have an extra 500 to a thousand bucks in your pocket when all is said and done!
