"X" coded heads are reported to be experimental type heads.  I'm not into small blocks, but many here are.

Perhaps others can help you with what might be different about the "X' 041 head.

A friend who has spent his entire career at the Saginaw foundry says the "X" is meaningless - just a foundry marker - on all small-block heads except the 461's, where the 461X had a 15cc larger intake port.
