    Default Differences?

    Whats the big difference between the 3400 heads and 3500 heads? I found a whole 3400 top end, and need to know if its worth getting. The main question is the 3400 head should work right?

    Anyone out there in v6 land? I read somewhere sayin the ports on the 3500 heads are different than the 3400.

    The cc is smaller on the 3500 heads. U need to use 3400 pistons with 3400 heads

    3500 heads flow way better than 3400. 3500 lim flows better mid range and the same top end flow. Use 3400 pistons with either head unless you get a cam with a lot more duration to blow off compression.
    The cc size should be the same. Shape maybe not, a 3400 is 9.6;1 with either head(3500 3400).

    I thought the 3500 intakes are too tall to fit under the cowl?
