455 cylinder head question

(1/1)

gasman2b93:
Iím building a 455 for my wifeís 79 T/A.  I have a complete 1973 motor with 4X heads and want to use different, factory heads.  My plan is to use the factory crank and upgrade to a roller cam/rocker setup.  I have someone selling both #94 and #99 heads, are these a good fit for this motor?  Iím not looking for a screamer, but want something thatís able to get up and go.  Any feedback will be very helpful. 

Tammy:
Both are 96 cc heads, so you'd have to watch your compression ratio.. depending on your deck height, should be about 9 -9.5 to 1.  With the roller set up, you need to have screw in rocker studs.  Just my opinion of coarse...      Not a screamer, but yes, plenty of fun!

Wallington:
When you have gobs of torque you don't need it to be a screamer.
