Pick one and they'll help you. I would but I know close to nothing in all honesty.

Trust me, I definitely am not expecting a crazy difference. I know I'm gonna sell the car in a couple months, but I kind of want to enjoy it a little while I have it.

A pair of summit vortec heads (supposedly made by Dart) runs $322 shipped. If I saw any performance increase with that, I'd be more than happy. I'd do cam and intake as well.

I just feel like anything will flow better than the stock smog heads.

Clearly Performance SBC parts are a dime-a-dozen used. If you're selling the car anyway, buy higher quality used parts, rather than lower quality new parts. The 350 was GM's bread and butter for decades, it went in just about everything they made, check forums for cars/trucks/whatever and you'll be able to find decent used heads at a good price.

Thanks. That's really what I was looking for. I just didn't really know where to look for used vortecs. completely forgot about forums.

If it were me (and I am no expert) I would go with a pair of used aluminium vortec heads for cheaper, drop in some 1.6 rr and lt4 springs and call it a day. For 300 you can find all of that used on certain forums. Check out http://www.ls1lt1.com, sometimes good deals on there, but like always, they good ones go fast.
