did i read somewhere that a 250 head from a 77 mav has bigger intakes and ports? did i also read they will bolt right up to my 72 mav that has a 250? should i take the 77 manifold too?
thanks

If anything Scott you want to find a 1966 200 head from a mustang with adjustable rockers.The combustion chambers are smaller which is what you want. This makes compression.

Actually the 75-76 heads have the largest intake log volume. A 78-83 head off a granada or fairmont has a slightly smaller intake log compared to the 75-76. But the 78-83 has hardened exhaust valve seats and larger 1.75" intake valves.

These heads are a direct bolt on swap.

For the compression issue the smaller chambers of the older heads don't make up for the poor breathing of the tiny intake logs. You can accomplish the same with the newer head simply by having them milled. A 78-83 head can safely be milled up to .080".

How would you like a head for your motor with a removable aluminum intake? It is a direct bolt on.
