No you cannot.

And show me a stock 350 long block that can run around 1,000hp. There's a LOT of boosted 5.3L's doing that every weekend.

The heads are a big advantage as is the intake design, as is the electronics, but those are NOT the only advantages. Every aspect has been improved from the oil pump to the valve stem.
