Short blocks don't have heads.

My shipping weight on an average shortblock is 450 pounds including the crate and pallet, so probably 390-ish? Alum heads are about 70 pounds a pair, so ~460 pounds...

If you want to avoid port matching, a std port intake would be best.....Torker II, Performer, Weiand 8012, etc.

Even at 6000ft, you're going to need 105+ octane with that compression. Aside...

That's correct, Voodoo line only. No 429/460 cranks in the signature line.

As for strength, I think you'd be hard pressed to show a difference between a premium off-shore 4340 crank like Lunati...

There are very few roller springs that will fit in the A's retainer/cup package, and they're really only going to work with a low lift cam. Better to start with a B head if you plan to run a roller....

Be careful with the Eagle forged cranks. They have the same "weight reduction" on the sides of the rod throws that the cast cranks do, which might compromise strength at higher power levels.

The valves in those heads are in a non-stock location, so you're going to have V/P issues unless you notch the pistons, or run a small cam.

The ONLY heads with standard size and location ports are the Edelbrock RPM heads. Don't pay any attention to the pecking order chart.
