    Question on Head Setup

    For X-mas my dad said he would pay for half my heads

    I am looking at the Patriot 5.7L Stage II Heads. My question is what valve size/chamber size do I need. I emailed Gunnar (from patriot) and he told me to get 2.02"/1.57" with a 64cc chamber and a .041" gasket to get a 10.7:1 compression. I also emailed someone from WS6store and they recommended the same thing but to get the stock .052" gaskets. Which one should I get for my application?

    Mods in sig.

    you've answered your own question.......would you take the advice of someone that operates a retail store or someone that builds heads for a living?

    If your cam is small enough you may be able to get your heads milled a bit and pick up a few extra ponys. Go ahead and push your compression up to 11.0 or a little better if you can. I think PP will do it for free if you request it. I would certainly ask!!
