    The 461 heads also came with 2.02/1.6 inch valves and were used on the solid lifter motors in 64/65 (365/375hp), and I suspect the 350hp 66 motors. I still have a rebuilt pair I bought new in 1965.

    I’m a fan of the hydroboost setup. As your 57, I used one on the 56 bel air ht, as well as have one for the 66 Chevy II. They take very little foot pressure and provide a rock solid pedal.
