I doubt they will mess with the 351 heads but THUMPER will in FL. But by the time you get them ported, valve job,etc. you are 3/4 the way to a set of aluminum heads.

World Windsor Sr's are good. Iron heads and you can usually pick up a used set for a good price like the $350 I paid for them. I sent them out for a valve job and shit and spent another $350 on that but still a good set of heads for $700 isnt bad.

GT40P or GT40 if it was me on a tight budget. See my other post for the car running 11.8 with a Explorer motor and HO cam.

I would think those heads are a bit small for a 347. They just wouldnt flow enough.

Ok I'm going to jump in on this and I know people are going to argue with me but facts are facts. Trick Flow T/W is the standard for sbf heads on anything smaller than a 4.100 bore. The reason is simple, most inline heads have the intake valve right next to the cylinder wall. the smaller the bore the closer it is. This causes the valve to be shrouded and you loose power. On a T/W head the intake valve is moved toward the center of the bore and the exhaust is moved a little closer to the cylinder wall (which is a good trade off).
Big heads on a small engine are a good thing. Some disagree but they are wrong. LOL However, I have to disagree with the AFR 225's because the intake valve is right on the edge of the cylinder on a 4.030 bore 347. They work great on 363coupe's engine because of his 4.125 bore.
If it were my engine I would 1st look at Trick Flow T/W heads or find a nice used pair of canfields. RHS heads are also a decent head for a small bore but not as good as the other 2. Stay away from AFR's or Vic jr's unless you have a big bore or you will be wasting your $. Just my $.02

afr 185s and victor jrs will work very well. Seen a bunch of 450+ RWHP set ups with them on pump gas 347s. My old 347 had twisted wedges and they worked good on my 347.
