My husband recently swaped his 305 engine for a 350. He wants to get cylinder heads for Christmas, and I told him no. So I cant ask him which are the best with out giving away that I am getting them for him. I have done some research at Summit and Jegs, found a bunch of diffrent kinds. So do brands matter? How much Chamber combustion volume should you need for a Drag strip car? Is aluminum better then cast iron or vice versa? What else matters?  Confused

thats really hard to say, because there are many possibilties involved. only he really knows what he needs unless you can find a buddy who can help you out with some info.
but with the iron vs aluminum heads, the aluminum will be better(because there lighter) but will cost more. however,  the cast iron heads will be cheaper.

Hope i could help, good luck Smile
