Best factory 460 head

What is the best factory head for a 460? Obviously SCJ and CJ are the best, but what about DOVE, D1VE, etc. (These seem to be more plentiful and cheaper for my low buck performance engine.) I realize that some/or alot of porting will be necessary for good street/strip performance. I'm just need to know a few casting #'s to look for.

Also, is any particular aluminum head (such as the SVO Cobra Jet) better than the other?? I'm so confused!!

THanks!!!!
Pat

The D2OE police interceptor heads are real good!

I have a mildly worked over pair of them for my 472 build up.

I have seen lots of guys make great power through DOVE heads too?

It's just the D2OE PI heads would be a step up from the DOVE ones.

Ditto on the PI heads. I scored a set recently. Check out the 385 forum and the following website for mucho info.

That would depend on your combo?

Cubic inches,RPM max and street manners are all factors that you will need to factor in?
