I am building a 496 as we speak...going into a 71 chevelle...Its going to be a strret/strip based car, but more so 85% high perf. street warrior and 15% track time here and there during spring and summer months...I know there will be some debate on some of my choices on different components due to personal experiences or use. I am open to advice and guidance, but I really want most of the info/guidance I recieve to be on cylinder head choice mainly.
I will list some of the components I will be using in the build that will help with your advice.
Cam 242/248 .566 on 112 LSA - Hydraulic Roller
Flat Top Pistons
Comp Cams hydraulic roller vertical link bar lifters
1.7 Ultra Gold Roller Rockers
Rectangle Intake ports
Round Exhaust Ports
Edelbrock Air Gap Dual Plane Intake
Hooker Super Comp Headers 2" Tube/3.5" Collectors
One of the questions I had what on what kind of chamber I should run, Heart, semi open, open???
Each of these heads run a different chamber type...Other than a few cc different on the intake runner and exhaust ports and Im sure maybe some quality and flow number differences they have alot of the same included parts. This is where I need the most help in choosing the right heads for my build.
If you need more info on engine parts I will be using let me know and Ill list more components...
The heads I couldnt get comparision chart for refererene to work so you may have to go to each link and compare from there...(Let me know what you think)
Place your choice and reason why in reply....thanks in advance for all help!
