building a motor for a freind to use for next year its for a bomber or econo car. rules are any oem heads 9 to 1 comp 360 max cubes and a min vac rule of 15 at 1000 rpms. with rules like that what would be best heads to run camal humps, vortecs or 441, 487 type heads. I have always ran 487 in the past but he wants to build a strong motor. thanks for your help

487 would be my chioce with somework you can build one sweet engine but take every advantage that you can get to gain hp you will need it
good luck

hey you ever gonna make it over to wc this year man? anyway i'll agree the 487 are gonna be your best bet unless you can find some vortec's with the compression you can't realy run anythign else because all humps are 64cc. and while your look'n for the heads try to find a block that has the fuel pump mount on it and check if it's a roller thats what i'm gonna look for if i don't get this b mod rules don't say anything about no rollers just says has to be stock and hydro cam at least in webster anyway alta has always gotta do everythign the hard way lol
