Are 84 Corvette heads any good for performance or should I

Customer Question

Are 84 Corvette heads any good for performance or should I swap them for something else? I'm swapping the cam, intake and headers with duels.
JA: Are you fixing your Corvette yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Right now, I'm gathering parts. I was thinking of getting iron heads from Summit Racing but, I learned I would have to get different headers cuz of plug angle. Yes, I'm doing myself.
JA: What year is your '84 Summit?
Customer: My what?
JA: What is the make/model of your car?
Customer: 1984 Corvette
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: That should do it. Are 84 Vette heads to "smog motor" restrictive to use?
JA: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?
Customer: 70,000 4 speed manual

Switch to Vortec heads, but you will also need a vortec intake manifold.
