    Heads Any Ideas?

    So this could be a vauge question just out of curiousity wondering where i should go from here besides a new rear end. So is there a cheaper way out to buying heads like som off a LS2 ported or something?? Just throw some ideas out here besides spending thousands on a set of heads. Thanks. Oh and as of now i have a custom ground cam 231/235 116 dynoed at 394rwhp.

    The 243 heads off of an ls2 are the same as the heads off of a z06, just has normal valves and not the light valves...you can usually pick a set of used ones up for around or under $500

    Id definitely get them ported 1st...if not you won't see much gain over stock.

    If your PTV clearance is good I'd get them milled some too to give a bump in compression

    If you have a local track, Ho there and hangout, ask around some of the faster guys and see if they can recommend a good machine shop/ porter
