I think the hard part will be finding 4.9" B.S. Roberts Design heads. Most people using them are running mountain motors & 5" B.S. Like Rick said, I would call Carroll Carter & he may be able to point you in the right direction on some used heads.

I would keep my eyes open for a used set, new ones are expensive! You might try avertising for some on racing junk.com. If you talk to Bamber or Kaase, they might have some leads on who you might call.

There was a guy on racing junk not too long ago trying to sell a complete Boss Motor. It was injected. If I remember right, it was a pretty good price.

Andy, you are probably talking about the guy from VA with the green 62 Falcon. It was a 665 alky injected with the solid C&C block. It had the C&C Boss 9 heads on it. The engine sold & Carroll Carter freshened it up. I think he said it made 1350 HP. Not to shabby.. :D

IS THIS GOING N A DoOR CAR?u might want to consider A441 heads, hemi of course,they work very well,and there out there used, and are a better choice for a 700 or small engine(they work on larger also),the b441s hemi work well with forced air,on little engines,or 640ci and larger,it would take to long to explain on here

If you want to run the B441 head, plan on spending between $13K - $14K for the head castings, port work (from Kaase), titantium valves, spings, retainers, rockers, and valve covers. HRE gets $2900 for an intake or Hogan's gets $2400. But it's all top notch stuff. It'll make a lot of power. How fast do you want to go 8)
