no sorry they are cast iron.
No because the ports on a tbi head are different than the ports on a vortec head, vortec heads need a vortec intake however you can switch a carburated engine to a tbi engine because the heads are the same
Engine heads are constructed of iron or aluminum.
The 1995 350 or 5.7L has a T.B.I. and standard heads. 1996 its a C.P.I. and Vortec heads.
No, the 1992 Chevy 350 (5.7L) V8 is not a Vortec engine.
it will work I have vortec heads on a 72 400 small block, I had to get the heads reworked for the 400s water ports or steam port and a vortec type style intake will be needed
I know on my vortec engine the valve cover bolts are in the center of the cover and there is only 4, my racecar has vortec heads and my truck has standard stock heads with four bolts on thew corners
The word 'vortec' is the name of the cylinder heads used in Vortec Model engines in the year 96'+ The engines that use the Vortec cylinder heads are the 4.3L Vortec, 5.0L Vortec, 5.7L Vortec, and 8.1L Vortec. They were only put on Gen I small blocks. If they are any other size Chevy engines and still retain the Vortec name then it's purely a marketing name, the same goes is it is later than a Gen I engine. For example the new 4.2L I6 from GM retains the name Vortec, but it does not actually use Vortec heads as these heads were only made for OHV engines, and the I6 is an OHC engine. The Vortec heads are based on the LT1 and LT4 head after they were discontinued along with their reverse flow cooling design. It is simply an effect made in the head similar to a vortex to better atomize the fuel and air intake charge when entering the combustion chamber, it is not a different type of motor.
You have to remove the engine cylinder heads to get to the lifters on the 5.3.
Yes, they will work. but you wont gain power because the little 305 isn't putting out enough flow to keep up with the heads
No, but if the 96 has the 5.7 Vortec engine then it will have different heads which give it more power. ETA Question: Can I put the '96 vortec heads and intake on the '93 engine? You will need a vortec specific manifold. Edelbrock makes one
The 3.1 L V-6 engine in your Chevy Corsica Has Aluminum Heads
You will need an after market Vortec Intake None FI 4BRL set up. The vortec engine has longer runners to increase air speed for the vorteciy action of the heads.
