thanks for the info & web site Now to decide what set to get, but for the money, more than likely the 188s. Think they will work good in 12 to 1 468 with 630 lift solid and 2 650 DP on tunnel ram? MSD of course.

The 188 replaced the 990 casting, use either of those but I would not suggest trying the 088 on the mkIV block. I think that valves would have been 2.19" and 1.88" on all three to start.

What kind of rpm/gear/prop? With a 468, you will do just as well with a set of prepped oval ports (and the right cam), especially if staying below 6500rpm.

I would do more checking around on the numbers, ls7 heads are 627 2990 G M 1T block 14015445. front tab T0118 XCH. this long block i bought in early 70s and still in the crate waiting for the right boat. check more around on the net, and check again. most of the time there not right. hit the net and buy a book called how to hot rod big block chevys, printed in 70s and in the back will list all the info you need and chevy part numbers from then.
