before i spent $1k to repair that head, i'd put another $500 with it and get something new.

a pair of high ports is like $1600.

or find a used set of vic jrs or TW or something.  spending that much money to repair that head is just not a good plan IMO.

Itís unfortunate because they are one of the more well known shops. People from all over the country send their stuff to them. I was thinking of still getting heads repaired by them since they are known for their great work. He had a full long block for sale at the time I enquired, not sure if that had something to do with his opinion on my heads haha

So as long as they get a clean bill of health from them for the 800 to 1000 they originally quoted me, Iíd be in good shape with those heads?  Iím going back and forth between a dart block or building a stock block.  I know the wiser thing is to do the dart block. But that is several years away. If doing a ford block Iíd go with the 347, dart Iíd opp for the bigger bore and go 363.

Sounds like you need to find another shop to deal with.

Those heads are about perfect for a 302, and on the smaller side for a 302 based stroker.

In nearly any case, the larger bore is preferred. In addition to additional displacement, the larger bore helps unshroud the valves.

Also hope itís okay that I posted this here. I see that this is labeled as stock heads category , but I see a few other posts referencing aftermarket heads.

Hey I have a set of these heads. Older non renegade heads. When I blew up my motor it took out two cylinders which in return damaged one cylinder head. I had gotten one quote on fixing them and it was in the 800 to 1000$ ballpark. The shop that was going to be doing the repairs actually advised against using them on a 302 based motor. I am trying to figure out if I should get them repaired or cut my losses. I spoke with another machine shop who I was enquiring about doing the bottom end and they had told me if I were to go with the 4.125 bore the heads would be a perfect set up. I am going back and forth because a new set of decent heads are looking to be minimum 1500 or so. Iíve been on the look out to see if a set of my heads come up used but it seems they are uncommon.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Hey thanks for the add guys. I drive a 1973 maverick that I converted to efi and turbo. I had stock bottom end  with aluminum heads  and unfortunately destroyed my motor on its maiden voyage down track. Made my stock internals into stock externals. Lol. Looking to learn a lot and build something reliable and hopefully not too pricey.

We put some suspension limiters on the front of the car and limited it down to 1 1/2 of travel and the Ole Blue loved it. 5.69 @119 1.23 60ft on a 250hp tune. Starting to get a little concerned about the 1.090 comp ht probe pistons. Not sure if I can push them much harder.

Interesting, I own the RPM II for my 347, and a lower Victor 5.0 I want to sell.

If I make time, maybe I can find the Victor 5.0 and compare them. I liked the Victor 5.0 as you point out others say is great, but I needed the lowest intake to mount an intercooler above. I got a TFS R lower for that recently, the ports look to be a hair bigger than the Victor 5.0 lower.

If you don't have a line on the lower, I'd like $150 for this one, it came from the Corral forum.

Nope. 5/16".

At 40#, the efi cars can push more fuel through the same size line than a mechanical pump can suck through it.
