    I am rebuilding my 5.7 TBI for my 93 Chevy truck....I was planning to geta set of Vortec heads to put on it....but I found a set of TBI heads with 2.02"/1.60" valves.....the heads are the same price either way....I am going to have the block bored .030 over and run a RV cam....which heads do y'all think I'll get the most out of?

    Your going to have to get another intake yours won’t work and it’s not cheap maybe buy a good set for your 93 truck.

    The heads with the 2.02 valves are TBI heads....I think I'll go with those...eventually I'm going to put in a bigger cam and an aftermarket EFI system....that TBI/Vortec intake is about $350....plus a pair of Vortec heads are $550.....I can get the 2.02/1.60 TBI heads for the same price.
