    Default WTB: SBC parts; vortec heads, intake, cam, rockers

    All I know SBC are not overly popular around here, but I thought Iíd give it a shot. Figure someone might be hoarding something from the past.

    I have an 86 Howard with a Mercruiser 260 backed up with an Alpha drive. Looking to up the power slightly, nothing serious as I know the drive canít handle much more than 320hp. Also I donít want to spend serious money on it either.

    Looking for some vortec heads to build off; which means Iíll need a new intake as well, thinking aluminum and probably a high rise.
    I have a Q-jet currently installed, but I also have a Holly 650; not sure which Iíll use yet. Or if I should go for an Edelbrock 1409.

    To take true advantage of the head swap, Iíd like to complete this step up swap with some new rockers and a cam. Not sure what Iím looking for here, been looking at the comp NX262H. But I know everything needs to function together, and thatís where I need help understanding.

    Any help on locating any of items would be great, working on kind of a budget but willing to spend for the right items. Thank you

    Default Sbc

    If have a couple sets of heads. 64 cc ported iron dart heads, Edelbrock center bolt aluminum heads 62cc if I recall correctly. If you are stuck on Vortec heads buy them new from summit as most of the used sets I have found have been cracked.
    At the end of the day do u really wanna be seen driving a wacker?

    Yeah, one of my buddyís told me to watch out for the used cracked heads. I am mostly looking for vortecís being they are cheap easy power.

    What he said... Heads from the junkyard are going to be just that, Junk. The Edelbrock heads are a good option. You can find good aftermarket heads at a reasonable price that will give better service, plus with the standard intake bolt pattern the options for intakes are greater. Get the heads you'd like then the intake and cam to match. Good Luck.
