Im not too familiar with the 601 head. However I have ran the 58cc double hump heads, with 1.94 1.50 ss valves. Then used 1.250 diameter high lift springs. I had them angle milled to 52cc. I used 2 valve relief flat top pistons. It is a good budjet combo with the right cam. Works good in my stock and mod. I turn it above 7500 rpm. What with the open rules regarding heads in the mod class, I wouldn't spend alot of money on stock type heads.....This is just a strong engine that I had, so I used it. My next one is going to have at least 13.0 to 1 compression. Big valves, runners, springs...etc.....

I used these heads on a street stock (3200lb) car for years.also ran on mod for one season because I had them.Turned around 6500 to 6800.It made good torque.You must use a thick head gasket not metal.The late model 350 gaskets from chevy work well and are only .026 thick.use them if you got em.

they work great on hobby cars if you port the snot out of them and have used the thin metal gasket with them and have heard that they work better with the smaller valves in them
