The problem with the Patriot Heads is they no longer make them for our favorite LT1's, I sent a couple emails back and forth to them. I was saddened to say the least!

No point in doing heads with a stock cam, why not go with an LE1 package? Comes with assembled heads and your choice of cams for about half the price of both heads you posted, and flow WAY more than the edelbrocks, and about the same as the as cast darts.

LT1 LE1

Don't run the Edelbrocks or Darts if aftermarket run Trick FLows or Air Flow Research. Best value for the money is Lloyd Elliots LE1's ported stock heads. Ported I'd choose 374 castings numbers match production 93 heads and ported they really flow.

Someone stated get AFRs and send them out to be CNC. Problem is AFR is a fully CNC head in the box. They aren't as cast.

Best heads for bang?
AI 200cc factory CNC castings. On a 383 makes over 500rwhp. 1800 bucks plus 400 and you can have a cam from them.

Best all out head while keeping it direct bolt on?
AI 215cc TFS heads.

It is VERY VERY VERY RARE for anyone to make 500rwhp... PERIOD. Let alone with the AI 200cc heads. Most I normally see is around 450-475, and I cant think of a single 383 with ported stock heads that is putting down 500rwhp.

Even with the TFS AI heads, people rarely put down over 500. Once again, Ill say it, I cant think of a single build right now that made over 500 to the tire with either of AI's packages, other than the 1 or 2 that they show on their website, which are FAR from street cars.
