    With the 4" bore of the LS2, it opens up quite a few great choices. Whats your budget? That's the biggest question really.

    AFR, ETP, TFS/TEA are all great heads and depending on who ported your 243 LS6 heads, would show an increase in power. Thought of a Procharger, maybe a cheaper cheap swap?

    Without specs on the camshaft, its hard to say if you would gain any power from swapping, or if it would be putting the power where you don't want it. Check into those heads listed, they are pricey but all performers.
