What did 882 heads come on?
the 882 heads were installed on the 350ci and 400ci engines (400 heads had steam holes). The 882 heads had double heat-riser passage and were prone to cracking because they ran so hot. They were considered intermediate performance heads and had 76cc chambers.

Will 305 heads work on a 350?
305 heads on a 350 will raise your compression a good deal, maybe even too much for pump gas if you have flat tops or domed. I would go with 350 heads if I were you. If you have flat top pistons a set of 350 heads would be best.
Are 906 Vortec heads good?
the better of the 2 are the 906 casting heads because they have like 20% better flow over the 062 heads. 062 heads come of the 3/4 ton trucks. So you have the lower flowing vortec head but hey man be happy you have vortec heads man those heads work wonders. But all in all 062 is less flow and 906 is high flow.
What CC are camel hump heads?
Even older is the troglodyte-like 64-cc chamber heads, often referred to as “double hump” or “camel hump” heads because of their distinctive casting marks on the ends of the heads. These smaller chamber heads had better flowing ports than the later 441 or 882 castings.
Will 327 heads fit on a 350?
They are perfect for a 350. Both the 327 and the 350 have a 4″ bore so they like the same heads. Old heads like that will have softer valve seats, so if you want them to last a long time, you should either replace the seats or run leaded gas in the engine.
How much horsepower does double hump heads add?
Stock “double hump” heads flow 202 cfm intake and 141 cfm on the exhaust. If you must maintain a stock looking port, consider our “Undercover Porting”. With our “Undercover Ported” they will flow 220-230 cfm intake and 165 cfm exhaust. This flow improvement will add 15 to 25 horsepower to your engine.

Do aluminum heads make more power?
Aluminum heads will dissipate heat faster. This allows for higher Compression Ratios with less risk of Detonation. The cooler head also delivers a cooler air/fuel mixture to the combustion chamber. Cooler air is denser and can make more power.
Why are Vortec heads better?
The L31 Vortec heads have larger ports than the older Gen I cast steel heads, so they outflow the older heads. The Vortec heads are a little bit lighter than the older heads and have a “kidney” or “heart” shaped combustion chamber that is more efficient than the double hump chamber.
