Need help picking the right heads for a totally stock 1986 (flat top pistons) 5.0 HO engine going in a 1965 Falcon.

Rebuilt the E6s before learning the value of the E7s and GT40s. Then got a 1970s nostalgic cross ram intake.

Intake has much smaller ports that do not look good with the 1986 intake gasket. So need to find which older heads have ports more in size with the cross ram.

Vehicle not used for racing. Just a cruiser looking for the right heads so it won't break a thousand miles from home.

with those pistons - they have no valve releif - you must be mindful of the valve events on your cam - IVO is the event that you have to watch out for. If am not mistaken the valves on the E6 are up in the chamber a little more than the E7's - so switching to E7's and changing to a cam with a early IVO could be a little bit of a problem

Want to know which 'older' heads are needed.
