    What should the casting number be on the factory heads for a stock TA Ws6 model?

    ...241, 853 or perhaps a number I am not aware of?

    anyone knows the head casting by year or years for 98-02 as well? Thanks

    Correction

    `97-98 = 806's (perimeter bolt valve covers)
    `99-00 = 853's (note some late `00 cars may have 241's)
    `01-04 = 241's

    its all good. i already knew '98 had perimeter valve bolt covers, and my 2000 SS had 853 heads, and those were center bolt, it was just the casting number that threw me off.
