What's the car going to be used for? Street/strip, or strictly strip?

If you stroke it, the added inches are going to raise the compression ratio as it is. If you plan on running on pump gas, milling the heads might not be advisable. But, if it's a racecar, milling the heads will raise the compression. However, I'm not sure how much can safely be milled off those heads.

If your going to stroke the motor I'd opt for some aftermarket heads. By the time you spend money on milling and cutting the valve pockets and porting work, you could buy a set of Aluminum ones ready to go. They'd work better with a stroked motor anyway. If your looking for stroker kits, go ahead and buy the 557 not the 514 set up like I did. the crank, rods and pistons are the same price. Of course I didn't realize that until I finished my motor.
Good luck
