I'm just asking... for all the work I would do to replace all that and make that kind of power, why not throw the blower on it and make more hp for only $1000 more? Now if we're talking like $2000 or more difference I could see not going all out and maybe staying a little more conservative, but $1000 idk. I haven't made my mind up yet because it is still only a 2 bolt main motor. There is still a 3rd option on the table... throw this out all together and weld in an LS motor for that price with a decent turbo. Idk...
you should be able to upgrade cam and heads for about 2000 and maybe some change for other updates if needed. I could hang a set of reman garrets on the tbi for about the same. blower would be 5 g's and will make your problems worse.

Did you check the DCR, CR and SCR are good but the dcr will tell you if its going to knock and how you can add a little cam to fix it. or take some away to max the torque peak. But I am not the best person to explain dcr maybe someone else can jump in on that one.

motown world of products heads with 210cc runners and comp magnum 294s flat solid cam unless you have roller already with high compression is a great combo but its not going to work for every engine. got to figure out the dcr then go on the safe side for pump gas and higher rpm heads.

Hope this helps.

So not to beat a dead horse here but i have been doing tons of research. Heres where i'm at... I picked up a set of 441 heads for dirt cheap (couldn't pass them up). Now is it worth the money to completely go through them, bigger valves, back cut the valves, mild port and polish work, ss swirl polished valves, valve job, guides done yada yada yada... or should I just pick these up? I'm easily going to spend that on these heads... so what do you guys think, where is my money best spent here? Thanks

For the money these heads can't be beat: Assault Racing Bare SBC Small Block Chevy Aluminum Cylinder Heads Straight Plug 350 383 400 - KMJ Performance

Buy them bare and assemble with some light valves and beehive springs and you'll have a very nice set of heads that are perfect for hot street applications.

The dart heads are a no brainer at 465 each its not a bad price for an ***. head. They are ready to bolt on and go.

Redoing the heads is not always practicle. In my local area machine work is not cheap. But if you got a friend of a friend you can call in a favor for them maybe it will work out to be cheaper but the dart heads are going to make more power than rebuilt heads. So in the end if your not getting the heads done for less than 500 its going to be better to spend the 900 on the upgraded heads. But depends on your budget. also dont forget summit is usally not the cheapest place to buy heads.

I can't use those heads. The chambers are too small... that's why i asked about 76cc iron heads and 72cc aluminum heads.

I've built a couple of engines this year using these:

Vortec Hybrid Marine Cylinder Head with Heat Riser | eBay

Talk about cheap HP if you're trying to use an intake you already have. I was skeptical but the quality was excellent. Throw in some valves and springs from Competition Products and for under $600 you have yourself a nice top end.

In your case the chamber is also too small (64cc)

If they have been good to you stick with them. Jegs is often cheaper so are alot of other places. Most local speed shops could give a better price than that as well but most are pretty tight on the prices.

Did you call them and ask if they had the heads you wanted in 76 cc. Im sure they got something that will work. Maybe find a model number you need and do a little shopping on the net and ask summit to match the price.
