    The research I have done so far leads me towards the L92 heads & Gm Hot Cam.

    If it is in the budget, I would look at the AFR heads.. excellent quality.

    Thanks Mike, but they are almost 3x the cost of brand new L92 heads from GMPP. They probably flow like crazy though.

    Picked up another piece for my LS today. I bought the motor with 317 heads but found a set of L92 (823) heads for $350. Pretty good deal I think. Hopefully I will get everything to the machine shop in the next few weeks.

    Got the block back and it looks brand new, very happy.
    Before I took it to the machine shop I spent some time deburring the oil passages. Always time well spent.

    Spent some today cleaning and getting the block painted.

    Starting looking around for a set of cylinder head stands. Most were at least $50, so out came the tools and for $10 here's my homemade stands. The OCD in me won't let them stay looking like that for long. A little smoothing out & polishing is in order. They work great.

    Used some over cleaner and all the carbon came right off.
