I have a chance to get some heads off of a what is described as a 1988 Camaro/TransAm TPI H.O. 350 (high output). I don't have any casting numbers yet. Compared to other stock heads, (041's, Vortec's, 461's, 186's etc, are they good for decent flow and performance? What is the chamber size and other spec's?

I need a set of heads for a Hobby-Stock dirt track car, 2,000-5,000 RPM, two barrel carb, stock exhaust manifolds, etc. They must be stock heads, no double humps, no 305's etc. Would these perform OK? I'm stuck with 305 heads at the moment for higher compression, but they're illegal and the flow, I'm sure, is no good.

I believe that even with the lower compression, some 64 cc, 350 heads with flat tops will out perform the 305's because of better flow.

What does everyone think?

If you can get a set of 041 heads they are called the 300 horse heads also but they have a small point on them instead of double-humps. If you were in the market for a new engine you could use the 88 model heads or any stock 76cc head with a cheap Badger piston with .240 dome and have 9.9-10.0 compression, perfect for our class. Hope this helps.
