you can make 400whp with stock heads, ive done a little of both so far .... a stock motor 62mm set up and a h/c/i 62mm.

you can stick with the stock shoft block and make good power, if its got some mileage on it you can always throw some rings and bearings in there.

if your set on getting heads id say some trickflow heads , stock cam and holley systemax intake .


1990 Notchback stock bottom end , TW's , F cam , Systemax and 66mm in the works.

+1, bone stock 5.0 will make 400+rwhp at 10-12psi.

If engine is running good, i'd just leave it alone and throw some boost
at it for your wanted power level.

Maybe later throw an intake and some TW heads on later if you're itching
for little more power and want to throw some money at the car.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep sitting down and voting on whats for lunch.

A tried and true combo is a stock rebuilt shortblock along with twisted wedge heads and and a performer or street heat intake. Throw in some 9333 gaskets, some decent ARP studs and the turbo kit of your choice and you can damn near ink in ~ 500rwhp with 8-10lbs of boost. Of course, you’ll be needing 42lb injectors, 255hp intank pump, matching MAF (or a big lightning meter) and a tune.
