|vinniekq2||or maybe geared down to a too low gear while driving down hill with good traction,,,|

. I plugged everything into the Canootin' Valves Calculator and it said it was impossible for that engine to spin over 8,900 RPMs... tach must be a little off... or maybe I misplaced a decimal point... what do you guys get? Don't forget to use the Plasmic Reaction Factor to 8 decimal places...
. Also having trouble finding the LINK for the crankcase scattershields again... I just used it yesterday...

9000 rpm stock block and stock 400 crank
882 heads that flow with a set of Dart iron eagles...

|79CamaroMatt||Yeah I go to a high performance school (UNOH) had my teacher port and polish and machine the 882 heads. Flow checked them and they flow the same as dart iron eagle heads. Don't get me wrong they do suck and are heavy that's why I wanted to get aluminum heads.|

|vinniekq2||If this engine went to 9000 rpm,you have all the right pieces|
|09-18-2014 08:40 AM|
|79CamaroMatt||It has flat tops with valve reliefs. I how the pistons don't hit because I had this car up to 9000rpm. The deck height I have no idea how much was taken off. I was looking at the summit vortec heads at 64-72cc but I don't want to have to get a new intake (vortec style) because I just bought a new intake. Can someone recommend me some heads or wants to sell me some or know where I can get some for cheap? Thanks|

How much was the block deck machined?? If it was more than .010" you have a potential problem with using the .015" thick head gasket...the pistons will hit the heads at rpm because you are too close on piston to head clearance.
With forged pistons, .035" total piston the head is a minimum safe spec, below that you risk a collision.

|bygddy||Good old "corvette" 882 heads.... your dcr is likely way high given the smallish cam and 10.5+ scr, the heads are junk, i think Vinnie is going to be on the money at 370 and even that might be optimistic. Swap some real heads on it, stay 72cc chambers, will make 400+ even with the smallish cam.|

only pressed on balancer I remember is the old 283s and older.
Like fbird says,give those heads to someone you dont like
|09-17-2014 09:26 AM|
|79CamaroMatt||the heads are 333882.|
|09-17-2014 09:26 AM|
|79CamaroMatt||Yeah its the harmonic balancer in press on not bolted on.|
