Hi Jack & Marcia!!! Loooong time no see! Hope things are going ok over there!
No answer off the top of my head(no pun intended) on your aluminuminum head question...someone will be along shortly with some info, tho. Thumbs Up
The '88-'91 L98 heads are pretty good(for stock, GM stuff), but you'll have to change the valve covers.

Edelbrock has several good aluminum head packages for you to see.  I think AFR is better but a little more costly.  Look at the literature and compare the head 'intake port volume' sizes and match that to the RPM range you intend to run.

Good to be back.  Project now back on course.  We had to take a break due to finances - can't wait to get going now.

hi joel,jack here

well it has been awhile.vette been under wraps for quite some time.

gas prices here are crippling $9+ a gall.

someone suggested to Marcia to import a vette from usa.

ha ha I said you have one.and the cost of buying then importing would do a hell of a lot of work on the  one she has.

 So that is what we'll do.

I got a ford fiesta st2,what a pocket rocket.

215 bhp in a fiesta is quick.
