Got myself a "head" ache

Post  njstang87 on May 28th 2012, 11:48 pm

Long story short I have a 466 I pulled out of another vehicle that I am putting in a foxbody. Trying to get the camshaft and a few other things sorted out so I have it on a engine stand. Low and behold it has mismatched heads on it. One is a C8VE E and the other is a D0VE-C. I know that different heads are different CC's. SO are these two the same or not? If not how big of a deal is this? I am on a tight budget so if this will work for the time being then great. The engine was in a truck when we got it. It was running but not correctly because it wore a lobe off of the camshaft. Thank you for all of your help and knowledge.

Is a non-issue. C8VE, C9VE, D0VE are basically all the same castings. Same valve sizes, porting, chambers and chamber size. Some D0VE heads were drilled for the thermactor air, but if it is you would just plug the passage in the end of the head.
