i talled to them and i think i will do the 205 heads when i do them. it has raised ports but its only .125 higher. im looking at doing a 347 with around 13:1 comp with the 205 heads.

I am looking into doing a v8 swap as well but I can't find any 1 5/8" primary tube headers and I don't know if I can make my own I have never really welded much.
also if you are going to run 205 afr heads you are going to want an 1 3/4" primary header or you might as well put 165's on it

I think a header shaped something like this would work good but this place doesn't carry headers for the ranger swap
