Dart has one of the best castings as far a quality. Any reason for aluminum? Iron makes more power all else being equal. What do you expect, and will you run street only or race any?

I got Brodix RR180 on my 383. My motor made 428hp, 460lbs with a small hydraulic roller cam, 10.5-1. RPM air gap, and a 750dp. AFR or Brodix i would stick with. The new AFR 195 is a really good head for street.

I'd start with the Brodix Track 1 or the Dart pro 1, .. anything else
will be a step down.

I wouldn't use Holly heads for a boat anchor, ..
