Are you using your stock 5.7 block? I heard somewhere that Apache heads won't bolt to a 5.7 block.

I read on a Chally forum that you have to bore notch the block otherwise the valves hit.

nice list of parts! I'll share my list in a month or so when we are done deciding.

here are 2 quotes from a guy that has already installed the apache heads on a 5.7. he did a before and after dyno comparing ported eagle heads to ported apaches and gained 44rwhp.

"both sets were ported. They will fit a 5.7 block, but you need to bore notch the block to be safe."

"With the heads you will need 6.4 valve covers and a custom length pushrod. Everything else including the manifold swaps over no problem. The camshaft has to be limited to a 218/224 grind as the intake valve sits closer to the piston limiting our ability to run the larger camshafts. I cant say with 100% certainty what the gains would be on a stock block, but I expect them to be about 30rwhp better than a ported 6.1 head with the same camshaft."
