how well would 60cc performer heads work on a turbo car?

here's my set up, 331 stroker ( boss block ) i have a set of edelbrock performer 60cc 190/160 valve heads that i have laying around and a master power t61 from my old set up. my thing is this, can i get away with using these heads be fine for now or would i have to sell the heads in favor of 64cc heads? looking to run between 12-14 psi on the street daily driver.

I'm running out of the box performer heads with 1.90 valve but with a 306 and a 60mm turbo and I'm running [email protected] with 15 psi.

Well, it all depends on what your compression ratio is, what you want it to be, how much boost you run, and how much you want to run.

Do you know your current static comp. ratio? Also what gasket are you currently running. And what is your bore size?

i didn't realize that i had so much laying around in my garage. the problem was i started a whole other project ( my single turbo 93 Lexus SC300 ) the mustang almost was forgot about. i also have a set of iron gt40's off of a 93 cobra stored in box's.

i didn't install anything yet but the bottom end is built to run low comp. 8 to 1.

youll want a gassket in the 12cc range. All I could find was copper ones, IDK if you have the right RA for those.
