Am running a 408cid sbc in a 1983 Chevy 4x4. It has a Scat crank, Scat 6" rods, KB 2-valve flat tops, World Products S/R torquer heads, Comp Cams 282/286 .510/.520 hydraulic roller, Weiand X-celerator port-matched intake with a 1" 4 hole spacer and a Demon 750VE carb. Due to some of the guides being bad, I was going to have the heads redone along with a port and a 5-angle valve job. The heads already have 1.46 springs with 10-degree retainers and locks with Crane 1.5 rollers. I also have an Edlebrock Performer Rpm intake on the shelf also. I have to run stock-style heads and pull 15" vacuum to run in my class. I thought about going vortech heads but having to change so much, I thought about bare Sportsman II's and putting the valvetrain from the S/R's in them. The Mrs. will let me spend about $750 so i'm looking from you guys what you would do with a limited budget.

I would defantely go with the Vortecs, the assembeled heads able to support .525 lift are $ 650 from scoggin dickey. Other than that all you would have to buy in an intake manifold and valve covers. If you sell your heads and intake, it will be cheaper in the long run. The Vortec heads will make more hp than the S/R's anyway.

Good luck

Check with Scoggin, GM had a Vortec Oval Track head on display that has both intake bolt patterns so would have to change, just a little matching.
