Just be sure the casting number is either 10239906 (the 906 casting has one large single hump on the end of the head) or 12558062 (the 062 casting has 3 small humps, aka "sawtooth" on the end of the head).

906 on Left, 062 on Right

Beware of the L30 305 Vortec head!

There are other heads to watch out for as well. One is the "swirl port" head like the c/n 14102193. Most any of the open chamber SBC heads are not considered to be high performance, and even the fuelie heads are now basically obsolete.
