Head casting #s for LT1 and LT4

I picked up a set of aluminum heads that have a casting # of 12551561 - does this # mean an LT1 or LT4 head? I can't find a listing for this #, L99, LT1 or LT4. I assumed, as did seller, that they are LT1s from a "96 'vette.
The heads are in transit so I can't just go measure the valves. I've seen the 1255 on a lot of LT4 parts.
Thanks guys!

Frank

There's two LT1 aluminum head part numbers too. 92-95 and 96-97. The later heads flow a touch more, but don't have quite as much meat in them for porting.

10207643 92-95
10128374 96-97

I can check tonight if you do not find out sooner. I have a book that lists all the casting numbers for each. Stay tuned.

www.mkmann.com/cyclinderhead.html shows this casting number as a 1996 LT1 aluminum head. One year only. I wonder who made them.....
Thanks, dudes!

so here I go (sorry)...I have a 95z and want to buy used heads to send to AI and have them port the heads.
Do I need to find heads with the 95 casting #s to be able to put on the block I have in my car now or will any LT1 heads be fine?

You should be good with any LT1 heads. Just check the casting numbers to make sure you don't get the iron ones. (unless that is what you want)

Don't worry about LT-4 heads U are not going to find them around likely.

You either want a 374 or 643 casting head when you send them off for somebody to port them. Those are the two castings that has the most meat on them for porting. I'd say the heads on your 95 now probably are 643.

when you say '374' are you talking about the LT-1 350 Aluminum 10128374? Where would I look for the casting number and do I have to have the heads off?
Thanks chris, you've helped a lot

Just pop off the driver side valve cover and peek down and read the last 3 numbers on the head, the casting number should be after the 1st or 2nd set of springs. The drivers side is a lot easier to take off
