ported cylender heads or stock ones 600hp

Alright guys i had a run away happen on my truck last week so its time to build her even stronger. I ended up melting 3 injector tips, damaged 4 pistons, and 4 of my cylender walls are done. So ive got another short block lying around and im going to buy all 8 pistons and rings, and i also need a new set of heads. So my question is should i jus pick up a set of stock ones or should i go with a set of elites ported with over sized valves ones, or does anyone else make some for a good price, or are they even worth the money. Down in my sig are all of my performance parts i have for the truck, my goal is to make over 600hp and still be able to tow and drive it anywhere. If i do get the ported ones im going to also throw a set of headers on it........ so what do you guys think

600hp and can tow would need twins and change to a 48V FICM. 190's, unless you really want to pass 600hp then the next size will do it. Ported would help allot, especialy with that much hp.

I have heard that it is pointless unless you upgrade your intake manifold with something like gogo's intake.

I do not know for a fact but I was told that for towing often, the FICM will get too hot.

If you raise the amount your heads can flow but leave the stock restrictive intake it will still flow the same. In order to get the full effect of the ported heads you would need to upgrade the most restrictive part. If any of that made since

I talked to elite today and they did say if i get their ported heads i should do the intake manifold and i also found out today that my spare short block needs to be punched to so now im going to punch it .20 over and that will also help with them oversized valves, i also figure if im going to have my motor out i might as well put a cam in it and paint her up to make her look good, and with that set up they said i should make over 600hp

With the cam, port heads, intake manifold... the more you do all of that, making the motor more efficient, the less you will have the need to get bigger injectors and turbo to get enough power to compensate for all of those restrictions. Thus, a better motor because it is not having to try as hard to get them ponies

What stage cam?
