mojonelo i think im going to go play it safe and find some heads off of a 400 block, again the main reason is that i dont know if these heads are for a 350 or a 400, any ideas on how to figure it out?

nitro_baller4692 here are some #'s to look at.if you are not going to go over .500'' lift on the cam 5c's are better,but if you are going to port the heads and go over .600'' lift find the 6x.
these #'s are in the right place.

port volume, 5c 151cc int./138cc exh.
6x 158cc int./146cc exh.
valve sixes
5c int.2.110''/exh1,770'' bigger exhaust valves
6x int.2.110''/exh1.660''
flow#'s at .500''
5c int.222cfm/exh.171cfm
6x int.212cfm/exh.148cfm

Pontiac Heads!

hey guys
i recently bought a 68 firebird, it has a 350 pontiac in it but i have a 400 ready to go into it. the problem is that i have some 5C heads. they are 400 heads but ive never seen them in performance applications. i usually see the 6x. does anyone have any experience with the 5C's or should i go and hunt down some 6X's?
