How big and bad is the engine?

The Vic Jrs would be my choice if you've got enough engine underneath them.

I'd rather have the Vic Jr Heads on that engine. A freind of ours at the track ran his 351w with Roush heads, then upgraded to RPM heads and lost .3 seconds e.t., then upgraded to Vic Jrs and lost another .3 seconds. No other changes, just heads.

So the Roush heads work best with near stock motors like mine.

Not really Ron.
With your 351W 4v heads, the R-200's won't show you that much gain.

Yeah,

When you're ready we'll help you spend your cash wisely and you'll run 11s even at Fallon. Too bad you have a mortgage and kids to raise. j/k
