I'm in the early stages of a big block turbo fox and we're about to select heads so that we can start on the tubing fabrication. We're going to use a pair of Accufab mid length headers for a starting point and modify them as needed, we got them cheap in new/pre-owned condition and the look like they'll fit flipped side-to-side if we relocate the oil filter. They appear to be setup for stock exhaust ports, but I'm sure there is enough meat there to fit them to a CJ port (and I can always whip out the TIG and add a little meat here and there if I have to). The short block will be an early stock (D1 I think) block/460 crank, probably 4-bolt mains, H-beam rods and probably TRW L2404F dish pistons.

I guess the root of my question is what would be the best flowing large chamber aluminum head with a stock shape port? I've pretty much got it narrowed down to the Blue Thunder 80CC heads with the raised stock port but I figured I'd ask now before we go spend money and see if there is something I've overlooked.

Thanks in advance.

I figure we're probably limited for the time being to ~1000hp at the flywheel because of the stock block and crank. It's a small tire car anyway (26x10 slick class racer toy) so that should be enough to make it fun. Down the road a couple years it'll probably get a good block and forged crank but it'll probably be a whole new motor by then too.
