    Probably fine, but you're looking at factory smogger castings rebuilt with larger valves, etc. I'm going to take a wild guess and say their 65 cc castings are based on 305 heads.

    If you're looking for additional power, you'll be $$$ ahead going with either Vortec heads or something like the E streets or the RHS vortec replacements.

    Years ago I bought a set of heads from them. It seems like I paid around 260 dollars plus about 25 dollars shipping. The heads were the old 993 non-sought after smoggers but they were nicely redone with larger valves and good seals.
    I still have them on my current 1981 4 speed Camaro but recently I did a bit of home porting and such to them and had them locally cleaned and resealed for about 125 dollars. I have a XE 268 cam installed (nice cam) and am running cheap cast flat top pistons which makes about 9 to one compression and headers. I must say the car definitely buggies and has almost alarming mid range power.
    The shop has been around forever and if you want to save a buck or two and still go fast, you can and you won't be disappointed with what they have to offer. Give the shop a call like I did years ago (1990) and you can go from there. Good luck

    IIRC, they sell the Iron Eagle S/S heads.

    Those flow nearly as much as Vortec heads, and according to CHP, they made about the same HP and Torque as Vortec heads, on a 383 using a Comp Cams Xtreme Energy 274H cam.

    Look at, not only the peak numbers, but the average numbers.

    Here are the results of the Dart heads.

    Then the Vortec Heads.
