383 comp drop

Either head will work the steam holes only play in on the 400 sbc you will not even notice they are there on a 350 with 350 head gaskets the 882 is a good at best budget head just because of the hardened seat they have but as far as performance they will do what you will need with the exaust and induction you are planning to use if you are planning on a good street toy and the cam you mentioned keep the valve size to the 194/1.5, it will help keep the torque you'll want ,be carefull not to sink too much cash in the heads any more than 300-350.00 would almost not be worth it you can get several deals on heads on line already done or new ones from aftermarket companies for around 400-600 for better flowing and better castings that will already come with screw in studds and guides just keep the runner size on the 170-190 to not over build the engine with your parts of choice, hope this gives you some information that will help, mike
