Question for you guys. On a 08E build car or any car for that matter should the casting date of the heads be before, after or real close to the casting date of the block? I am referencing a small block 300 HP setup.

Thanks!

They may or may not be within a few days or weeks of the block casting date, but in any event, the casting date on the heads must be prior to the stamped engine assembly date on the pad.
