Default 6.2 heads vs. 6.5 heads

Do the heads on a 6.5 flow more air than the heads on a 6.2? If not, is one better than the other? I have both, and idk which to put on my engine.

6.2 Heads are the better flowing ones. Pull out the old Die Grinder and you can make them flow some more.

Agreed, but even stock they flow better, so I'd use the 6.2 heads if they are in good shape which I'm assuming they are

Well Yeah they are stock to stock the better heads. But just saying if you have the Time even Gasket match the ports get some better flow.

HAHA Yeah the are. If you checked the last Diesel Power Mag they had the .5 with Sequential Twins that is using Ported 6.2 Heads So goes to show yo that 6.2 is the better way to go. Next thing to worry about is the 6.5 block it's not exactly the strongest.
