    Would the heads from a 1999 vortec 350 out of a camaro work on my 87 tbi 350 in my K5? Just wondering. Thanks.

    Only if you also buy the $300 TBI-to-Vortec intake manifold. :( The intake pattern on the Vortec heads is WAY different from the TBI heads.

    if its from a camaro no way they are two totaly different engines, if they are heads from a truck yes they will and you will need a new intake
