New to the forum here. Looking for real combos that have made 600 hp NA with Dove C heads. Is it possible with 460 cubes? I’ve played with lots of SBF and SBC stuff but I am Building my first big block with some Dove C heads we have kicking around the shop. Since I have 0 money into the heads I was planning on porting them myself and sending them to have bigger valves put in them. It’s going to be a race only deal so pump gas doesn’t matter. Going in a foxbody mustang. Looking for first hand experience with these old boat anchors

Port heads according to the site instructions. 2.19 / 1.75 valves are fine.
Flat top pistons
Torker 2 or TFS track heat non mafia.
SR cam in the 250 ish + range intake and another 16 exhaust.

Proper ignition curve.

Do you guys think the Speedmaster bare castings are any better than a ported Dove head out of the box? Another option I’m considering before I dive into the Doves


Out of the box or ported. No.
PC heads work well with boost however.
I am a PC dealer btw.

Looks like I’ll be putting some time into the Doves. Thanks again
