    Looking to upgrade in this area. I want to run the JBA's but they are not for my application. I'm not sure why i couldn't. IIRC, Chevy didn't change exhaust ports when they went to the 1pc main block.

    Anyone running (or has heard of people running them) on a older 350?

    TIA!

    <font color="blue">It was a little tight getting them in (had to take the plugs out) and the drivers side hits the clutch z bar but you wont have that problem. Best of all, no collector gaskets
