I just picked up a set of Aluminum Merlin heads for $400 from a local guy who just crashed his truck the other day. I guess they are 119cc Chamber with a 310cc Intake Runner, we will see how these work out. When I get an ignition I am going MSD everything, no playing around.

Are they oval or rectangle port heads? I'd like to get MSD stuff but ther money flow isn't there, plus big name company's make Summits stuff any ways.

They are rectangle port but should flow way better then stock heads though, I am also on a tight budget but when it comes to ignition that is something I will not compromise on, I will probably have to buy it one piece at a time and it will take a while but I feel the end results will be worth it.

The summit kit is good quality. I ran that set up on my big block street truck no problem. and have been running the rev box on the mud truck for 3 years no problems.

I was actually looking to swap out my MSD stuff for a Summit box. I'd like something with built in retard for nitrous/etc. The Summit stuff is cheaper than MSD.
Sounds like things are coming along!

MSD has this as well...you can even program it for more than on stage so it will back off the timing a little more as each stage comes on.

I already have an MSD start/retard box. I was looking at all in one units that included everything I want (also needs RPM activation), and the Summit unit is a lot cheaper than the MSD that will do the same job.

Hoss if you do go with MSD...I have a muitistep/retard box with some pills that has never been run. It is five years old but sold off my drag racing project. $75 plus shipping and it is yours.

get the best head setup you can afford. Have the cam setup for the rpm range the motor will work in. build the bottom end for the hp you expect to put out. keep the clearance on the gm spec. build the motor for torque.

If you don't have a cam yet, get everything else around, then call a cam manufacturer and get a custom ground cam. Most companies do not charge much at all for a custom ground, and you will be MUCH better off with a custom than an off the shelf.

I got a set of 990 heads w/ 2.25/1.88 valves and they've been ported by Rick Lapouttre. I think they will do the trick. Got a single plane Professional products intake, but may be looking for a dual plane instead.
