Post Gen IV 5.3l head question?

I have installed a 2007 5.3l GenIV engine and trans into my 1993 Chevy Z71. i have installed a mild cam, headers and cold air intake. The truck has great power, but I am looking for more. My question is has anybody had any experience with head modification, such as cnc work on factory heads or aftermarket heads. I think this is the next step in a great hp upgrade without supercharger, turbo, nitrous. Please if you have any recommendations, let me know?

Thanks

Heads are a good upgrade. Look to our sponsors over here =========>>>>>

You want 243/799 heads, otherwise known as LS6 heads.

yep the Gen IV already has the 799/243 heads. just buy a set of PRC 2.5 5.3 heads or even some Trickflows. you gotta ask yourself whats too much money, then stick to it.

nope...
a 06 will probably have 862 heads, 78mm intake, and dished pistons..
07 will have a 90mm intake, 243 or LS6 heads, and flat top pistons..
