    can you drill the vortec heads for steam holes? also wouldn't you need to ease the edged of the combustion chambers to avoid detonation do to the larger bore size of the 400?

    If you already have an intake manifold use the S/R. The Vortec take a special intake and that will set you back about $170. You also cant run over about a .480" lift with stock vortec springs. Also require self aligning rockers. If you dont have these parts, things can add up fast. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    If you can swing the extra $$$$ get some AFR's and call it a day.

    I second the AFR's. Do yourself a favor and check out Pro-Topline. They offer "stock replacement" heads in iron with improved vortec-style chambers, and their prices are very reasonable. They also offer Iron Lightning heads with 180 CC runners which should work well with your 400. Their flow numbers are MUCH better than the torquers, and better even than the vortecs, and they are available in pre-86 and 87-up intake patterns.
