In discussing heads builder A wants to go with a Medium Riser ported to flow 360 cfm intake 260 cfm exhaust. Cam is 240/244 @ .050 with 110 LCA. Builder B suggested a head that flows 300 cfm intake and 220 e haunt. Suggested a cam of 252/260 @.050 with 110 LCA. Both suggested an 11:1 static compression. Which is the better approach?

I was thinking of the edelbrock heads. Their are a few guys out there who use the pro port versions. Supposed to be good. As far as the blue thunder goes I've read a lot about then inasmuch as the quality is very good but supposidly the ports are too big. (Medium riser). It's my understanding they haven't made them in a while. I heard customer service is pretty bad too
