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.

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)
