AFR makes LT1/LT4 specific heads, std SBC gen 1 heads, which you linked to wont bolt up as an lt1 has a different intake pattern and reverse flow cooling.

And because their 210cc LTx heads are designed to be used with an LT4 intake manifold, and will not work with an LT1. If you replace your manifold they will work, though. Or you could keep the stock manifold and get their competition ported 180cc LT1 heads, they flow very well but are expensive.

AVG LT1 heads stock flow 205/155 ish for reference
