whats heads to use

i got a motor in putting together, sbc 350 bored .40 over, flat top pistons, 447/454 lift cam with 256 Intake / 268 Exhaust, 212 Intake / 218 Exhaust with 110 degree seperation, (1000-5500 rpm) 650 holly double pumper, weiand street warrior aluminum intake (idle to 5500 rpm), wondering what heads to use to match my intake and cam. probably looking at cast iron GM heads for now cause im strapped for cash, looking for whats valve size would be best, thanks.

if your weiand is not a vortec pattern ,then maybe edelbrock e-tec/dart shp,or maybe one of the other low to medium performance heads available.If you prefer cast iron,Dart makes some nice castings.
Any of the heads mentioned can be ported

Which Street Warrior? These come in square bore or spread bore, polished or not, for 1955-1985 center bolt angle of 90 degrees, or 1986 to 1995 centerbolt angle of 72 degrees, or 1996 up Vortec bolt pattern. What ever the part number of this intake is will dictate head choice with in a group. Once that's know we can aim you at the best and most cost effective solution. There are some decent to excellent head choices that are new or rebuilt that are not Vortecs available from either the factory or the aftermarket. There are many factory heads to stay away from as well.

After today, I'll be out of touch till Tuesday.
