    Best Brand of Heads for LS1?

    What is the best brand of heads on the market for an LS1 Head and Cam swap with ALL bolt-ons in place already? What about Livernois L-92 ported heads? All input is appreciated.

    l92 needs 4" bore or larger. if you dont plan on going all out and needing every last drop of power, then go with some patriot or tsp heads. otherwise afrs or ets are towards the top.

    afr have proven to be the best heads out there.

    personally i would get ls6 stage 2 heads which cost about half the price of the afr heads and get a fast 90 intake with a nick williams throttle body and make more power for about the same amount of money.

    AFR are the best because they are made from a block of alum. ported and machined. Bang for the buck Patriot, takes GM heads, and machines them to flow better, thinner walls but a good head for the $$....My .02 worth.
