Default Cylinder Head question.

Hey,

Im new to the forums. But not new to Dodge trucks. I've owned 4 80s dodge rams. Loved them all. They were all 318s except my new one. It has a transplaneted 360. I've done the usual work, headers, carb spacers, etc. Now i am getting into something more serious with the 360 and have a question.

Do 318 cylinder heads fit on a 360? I've heard yes and no. Mainly yes with the magnum. But i have a LA 360, and would be putting LA 318 cylinder heads on it.

Now, i know what you are wondering. Why? Well, its not just ANY 318 heads, im looking for fast burn heads off a 318 car. Mainly due to the 62.5cc combustion chamber. Gunna throw in some zero deck pistons. And i should be running 10.2 compression. Roller valves, good cam. All the goodies as well. And i know your wondering why don't i just buy aftermarket? Cause i can probably get both heads, with valve train, for the cost of one bare edelbrock head.

So now i am wondering, does it fit? I have an aftermarket intake, and carb, but thats it. Stock cylinder heads. Im probably replacing the intake anyways. But im just wondering if i am wasting my time finding the heads, getting the valves resized and a valve job done, and putting a whole valve train in? Do the heads flow well enough? Will they even fit?

Anyways, i guess thats about it. If you got any questions, go ahead and ask and i will try and answer.

Thanks.

They will fit but,The setup you want cam,pistons ex.heads will not flow good.318 heads intake runners are smaller i think .stick with 360 heads and get them worked.
