When I installed the intake a few days ago I didn't have the money for the heads or cam and now unexpectedly I do have the funds. Oh yeah I also got a 150-200 nos kit. My question is which aluminum heads and cam would be the best for my setup. What other mods do I need? Under drive pulleys a big help? Aluminum driveshaft? If I was to get a 331 stroker would my aluminum 302 heads fit it or not? Thanks alot.
Get list sounds good.
Any top brand heads will do the trick. I would make sure they have the upgraded flang to hold the head tight with the nos.
As for the cam. Once you decide on your heads and exact combo I would leave that to a professional. Having the right cam is key. And I'm sure a few guys will tell you what works good for them. But to get the most power I would leave it to an expert.
I would stray away from the ud pulleys also. Countless people on here have problems with them. Our cars don't take them very well. Almost everyone seems to have charging issues and even some have cooling issues.
I would also upgrage your injectors once you go stroked and hci.
A 331 is a 302. It just has different bore and stroke. So all bolt ons are the same
