    Default d2oe-ab vs d3ve heads

    I currently have the d3ve a2a heads but saw a Set of d2oe-ab on Cl for $400 would these be a improvement for my 460 pretty much stock. Are they a direct replacement of the d3ve how much horsepower can it add.

    According to my dad the Police Intercepter Heads are a direct replacement for your's EXCEPT for the Rocker Arms/PushRods. D3VE Heads use a Bolt down Rocker. D2OE-AA or AB Heads use a Stud type Rocker. Change to a Stud mount Roller Rocker and Hardened PushRods and they're a bolt on(PI Heads use guide plates).

    If your D3 Heads are stock you should pick up 30-40 hp easy. More if you have performance upgrades done to your engine. Even more if you have the Heads ported, etc.

    Hope that helps you out.

    Ok cool I also found some dove-c heads in my area one set for 225 good to go and another set for 150 but says needs recondtioned. Dove- c is better then d3ve right would I see same HP increase with these also, and port and polish them.

    Probably close according to RiverRacer(my dad). The D2OE Heads will flow a better stock, but the DOVE Heads will pick up compression. Ported, both will add lots of power over the D3 type.

    The doves flow really good on intake , exhaust was crap. Just put bigger exhaust valves in and you will be good.

    That's what I was thinking of running. The 270 isn't what I had in mind. Maybe the the 280, but the 278 has the upper end I am looking for. But hey 514 hp sound great to me!

    Match the cam to impeller. Those cams would work with small impeller. I have an A impeller and even with 500 hp it will only turn max rpm of 5000rpm. Those bigger cams prob just hurt power if you aren't gonna spin it past 6000rpm

    I did, he is booked for the next 3 months, and my heads are in need of porting, blending. I got a guy local that is good with a flow. I already have the 2.25 intake, and 1.8 exhaust valves, swirl polished stainless. I just have to deside what cam. Paul,had recommend the 278h grind, and even a voodoo grind. That guy is awesome! He has a great deal for some one with dove heads.
