So It Sounds Like Thay Are Worth Running.i Will Start Porting Them After Work.
Why are you porting them? There's already plenty of air in them for a 396. Use the search feature in this forum to see other 396 combos. Besides, if you don't have a flowbench to check your port work you could be making them worse.
actually the 1972 LS3 used the '2292' head.......very similar to the 241
I think the 241 was 454 only.
from what I've seen
I have a set of the 292 heads on my 402c.i. .030 over and I've tried to find flow #'s on them so these heads are ok I take it for a 408 c.i. bbc? I have a 454 c.i. .060 over 468 c.i. that I'm putting together are the 292 heads worth swapping over to the 468?
I had the 2292's on a 402 and I now have the 241's on my 454.Both heads are identical IMO.Both had mild port work done to them and I had 219-1.88 valves put inthe 241 heads.These heads perform exellent for me.If you alreadt have them I'd use them.JMHO.Tony
