Kenny, there must be dozens of heads that are better than those old factory
production heads. Stock L31's will flow better. You don't want pop-up pistons, as they make it difficult for the flame kernel to move across the chamber and will generally require more octane than pump gas to quell detonation. You can't search for a cam until you have nailed down the static compression ratio, rear gears and torque converter. 1.7 rockers are for a stock BBC or very wild SBC for racing only. Stick with 1.5 rockers. I've no idea what you mean by spider intake, unless you're describing a single plane manifold designed to operate 3000-7000.
In my opinion, you need to do a lot of reading about how combinations work together before you pick up another wrench.
