Best on down

TFS A 460 head is hard to beat hp per $.
P-51 Kasse
AFR probably may tie the P-51's if we ever see a all out deal on the dyno.
TFS 325 CNC
TFS 290
Ford SCJ
Edelbrock

There are more but these are the most used and talked about.

A factory C8/C9/D0VE casting will support 500hp "out of the box," but you might as well bowl blend while you have a pair on the bench.

A bowl blend on the SCJ's will move it up the list considerably. More than any of the rest.

BETTER for what ...?
All out horsepower capability...?
Best average power at Wide Open Throttle ...?
Part throttle response during transients ...?
Driving torque going down the highway ...?
etc.

How that particular engine, in what vehicle, is to be used will probably determine which heads would be the best fit in THAT specific situation.
They will all produce 500 horsepower. at 460 cubic inches.
