Post Vortec heads

I have a 92 Chevy G20 van that has a newer engine it , I don't know what year I haven't ran the #'s yet. I need to replace the heads becaue I believe one of them are cracked. The engine has a fuel injected throtle body. I noticed that the center bolts on the intake seem to be at a different angle than the two at the front and back. Vortecs are like that Right? Are there any other heads like that? I was told I needed fuel injected throtle body heads not vortec.

Not positive but I believe the 86-up all had the strate up center intake bolts and the vortecs I think don't have any center bolts at all.

78 Monte is correct. Vortec heads only have 8 bolts, 2 on each corner.

In addition to 78 monty's reply- only the steel truck heads had the "cut in-"almost" straight up" center bolt holes. The aluminum versions didn't have that "unusual" feature.
