However the OP has said nothing about going to 700 hp later.
If I wanted a 500 hp 460, and already had the iron heads I would just use them.

You can make all kinds of arguments to support your position that aluminum is better.
Aluminum certainly does have better properties.

Does that mean one can't make 500 hp economically with iron?

The Eddy aluminum would be my last choice for an aluminum head.

I've messed with plenty of iron heads.... Yes they can make decent power...... But they are freaking heavy and a PITA to port!

Face it, this guy is the same as the rest of us.... He will want more later!

The Eddys may not be your choice, but they work just fine if you want a stock valve location aluminum head. Just cause they aren't pushed doesn't mean they are junk.

A DOVE-C head with a little port work (easily done) can easily make 500+ HP on a 460 or larger displacement.
There are many references and pictures showing iron head porting - http://www.reincarnation-automotive.com/

The Eddy heads out of the box can also make 500 HP. The standard Eddy valves, springs, retainers etc. are certainly not race quality parts - however, would "do" for a street type engine.
New low cost valves, springs and retainers for the iron heads will not break the bank either.

If the OP was asking for 700 HP, then I would suggest an aluminum offering. In any case the factory EDDY's would require a complete upgrade of valves, springs and retainers anyhow.
Iron CJ heads have made north of 800 HP also!

Lets not turn this forum into a pissing match - like the old FE forum becomes (alot these days).

There are many opinions, and many ways to get to 500 hp Smile

Cheers

lol lol lol




well ,with that /\ said let me ask this, Whats the best et anyone has ran with an eddy head @ under 510 ci in a 3200 lbs car with 1 carb,and no power adder ?
I made 800 hp @ 466" with a set of Edelbrocks. But that was with 2 carbs..... Single is probably 775ish.

Bob at D&D had a number of guys running very fast cars with them.

Face it the Edelbrock stuff is superior.... I don't care how good you think you are with iron Doves


I never said I was good with DOVE heads, 800 with 2 carbs? who asked about 2 carbs? I said 1 carb under 510ci.          PLEASE reread my last post

Just my opinion, but if you are going to spend some money why not get something that would allow you to grow in the future? How long with 500hp be enough? The weight savings, and having all new parts, all pluses for Edelbrock heads.

Unless I missed it, the OP made no mention of being on a tight budget. My Eddies flow over 400cfm, They should keep a smile on my face for a while.

Exactly!!

This thread reminds me of one thing I have noticed about this forum. It seems people tend to automatically assume that they know what everyone else ought to have! What if the man has a line on a set of used edlebrock heads for a smoking deal? It's not like he mentioned his budget or even that he had a budget.

Let's get back to our roots and start giving people information and letting them decide rather than telling them what they ought to do! Share what you know. Tell him exactly what it would take to make a solid 500hp with D0ves.
