Default Head casting numbers

Hi,

I was wondering what the difference is in the different heads I see for sale, the ones on my motor now are 241's. Are they for different engines or different numbers for different modle years?

Thanks,
Grant

3 different castings, 241 (best flowing and came on mid year model 2000 and up) 853 same design as 241's but were sand casted, and not die casted so didnt flow quite as well, and there were the center bolt heads (previous two were perimeter bolt heads but i cant remember the casting number. as for the other heads, some flow better, others lower compression (6.0, good for FI), others are good for higher compression (5.3, and more power NA) i know its kinda vague, but i hope that helps
