    Default These Heads for a 1984 Corvette 350 Crossfire

    As I am doing a Complete Rebuild of my 1984 Corvette 350 ci Engine and will be doing away with the CrossFire and installing an Edelbrock C-26 Dual Quad Intake with (2) Edelbrock 500 cfm Carbs and also doing away with the Computer, I have found some heads that I believe will work (Thanks to JonM's recommendations) to install Aluminum Heads instead of having a Valve Job done to the old Cast Iron Heads...

    My Question is, will the Following Heads work with my 1984 Corvette 350 ci Engine:

    This is a complete pair of GM Hi-Pro Corvette aluminum cylinder heads. Ideal for small-block Chevrolet V-8 hot rod's, fresh water power boats and other high performance aplications. Casting number 10088113. This set of heads features screw in studs, 1.94" and 1.50 valves, 58cc combustion chambers, advanced D-shaped exhaust ports (enhances flow of burned gases) and centraly located spark plug holes to improve combustion efficiency, and HO 350 Corvette design springs. Heads have been completly professionaly rebuilt here at our shop. This set of heads does not have an intake manifold heat riser or EGR passages. The exhaust ports are .100" higher than production cast. Spark plug holes are angled and require 3/4" reach gasketed spark plugs (A/C spark plug number AC FR5LS). Heads are machined with accesory holes for power steering, alternator and A/C mounting. This set of heads does require the later model center pull down valve covers. GM suggests using a composition head gasket with stainless steel fire rings is recomended to prevent galvanic action between a cast iron block and aluminum heads. Help your hot rod loose 50 pounds by installing these heads.

    I need to know something before these get gone and I DO NOT wish to buy these Aluminum Heads if they are not going to work on my 350...

    Thanks in advance...

    Sounds like too much cfm for that engine, especially if heads are all you're doing. Where you gonna use all that air mixture?

    The Dual 500 cfm Carbs with the C-26 Dual-Quad Intake was per recommendations of Edelbrock...

    We are (or shall I say my Mechanic), is going to be Balancing & Blueprinting this engine. So far, we will have a Grind/Polished Crank, New Seals and Bearings, ARP Bolts/Studs throughout, HO Oil Pump, Rods Reconditioned (Shotpeened & Balanced), New SpeedPro Pistons/Rings, Crane Performance Roller Cam (not sure of the Lift & Duration), Edelbrock Timing Gear Set, FelPro Gaskets throughout, Crane Roller Hydralic Lifters, Chrome Moly Pushrods with Crane Roller Rockers...

    Will be using complete MSD Ignition Components...

    I am only going on what the Tech at Edelbrock had stated as this was for a 350ci Corvette Engine. JonM had recommended that I check out the Corvette Aluminum Heads instead of Rebuilding the Stock Cast Iron Heads as they would be able to flow better and cut down on some weight as well...


    If these Heads will work, please let me know...

    Thanks in Advance for any and all help...
