Welcome. Be sure to read the new member posts at the top of each forum. Lots of good info including advice on posting questions in the proper forum for best exposure to the appropriate experts. I'll move this to the engine forum.

yes 350 heads will fit but you need to put a 400 head gasket up to it and drill a few small holes for the steam ..called steam holes..

yes they will fit
yes you need to drill steam holes
no they won't flow as well as 400 heads

Look up how to drill them online. It isn't easy. There are two different angles that you have to drill at. If you mess up your heads will be ruined.

Just drill the lower 3 holes. They go straight in. The upper three holes are on an angle. If you buy aftermarket heads they tell you not to drill the upper 3 holes. Because you have a real good chance of screwing up. The lower 3 holes are the important ones. Its where the steam builds up under the siamese casting.
