    What do you consider high rpms ?

    Better heads out there to get 1000hp out of a 540 is taugh as it is without a ton of work.

    I am not sure what you consider high rpm, but I run my 540 around 8000 - 8200 rpm and my engine had Dart 355 CNC heads on them. My engine was just about 900 hp. They didn't flow enough air so I ordered a set of Edelbrock Victor heads from Curtis at RFD.

    IMO you will need to find a very happy dyno to get 1000hp, 900 can be had though. My 548 made 950hp but had a lot of work done to it, piston, head,intake wise. The heads will be a big hold back for your combo you should call RFD and get them worked on if the budget allows.

    Would they work yes .. are they the best far from.

    Dart 355's, Brodix bb3 x's, BMF 385's, RFD Edelbrocks
    All conv heads thats will work well and make the most HP/TQ

    18 Degree stuff Big Dukes would be what I'd look for but your going to spend bigger money there.

    Is there some reason you need to stay 540 ? Much easier to get there (1000hp) with a 572/582 Combo if you have to buy the stuff anyways why not go bigger ?
