        Is it not the last picture with circular like middle ports ?

        Those look a lot like the w2 heads I bought when they first came out from Mancini, at his place.

        I never installed them, they are basically NOS lol they are the ones they referred as W2 Race Prepared heads, the other ones were called Econo Heads.

          I found this picture of w2 heads, not exactly like mine but this is what I meant by circular ports, now that gasket pic has then on the last pic as circular but closer in together, so I can't say for sure.
          These are aluminum the ones I have are steel heads, I am (almost) sure they did not make them aluminum in the beginning when they first came out.
          I could be wrong, oh God knows how many times I've been wrong but I can't say that the heads I bought back then were just out maybe a few yrs and it was unheard of having aluminum small block heads.

          That looks like a W5 head. I don’t remember the bolt holes being that high on the port on those...but my memory is slipping for sure.

          The W2/5 have that D shaped exhaust port (which is way too big BTW but there isn’t much you can do about that though) but I was looking at the chart in the OP and was looking at the bolt hole location.

          I was going to take a picture but 70aarcuda did it. Now that I went back up and looked at it again, I remembered how it went.

          The bottom W2 head has just the W2 pattern on it. The top head has the W2 and OE pattern on it.

          Got it. If you don’t think about this stuff you start to loose it...

          Finally I can say I'm one up on you, because you said you will "start" to lose it.
          I've lost it a looong time ago. Therefore you will need time to catch up to my level of lost.
          I'm so lost that if I ever did find it,
          A) wouldn't know what to do with it.
          B) wouldn't know what it was..

          So I'm content where I'm at, lost. Yet happy.

            Judging by the steel inserts for the head bolts, those are aluminum heads. Could be Diamond W2's or w5's?
