big blocks like more compression, bigger carbs and a slightly larger cam than small blocks if thats what your used to building btw
you really should get these books and read them before going any further, it will help a good deal

Mark IV Family ZL1 Chevy Engine - History Of The Big-Block Chevy
How They Were Designed, What Versions They Came In, And How To Identify Blocks.
By Paul Zazarine


The legend began on the high banks of Daytona in February of 1963. A handful of Chevrolets arrived for the Daytona 500 with something mysterious under the hood. While Ford and Chrysler expected to compete against Chevrolet's venerable W head 409, the Bow Tie guys had a big surprise waiting for them. As Junior Johnson's Chevy thundered around the track at speeds in excess of 160 mph, every soul in the paddock, pits, and stands knew that was no W block. Hot on Junior's heels was Johnny Rutherford, in another Chevy. The Chevrolets of Ray Fox, Smokey Yunick, and Bubber Farr all ran with power unmatched by the 409, and Ford and Chrysler cried foul. [Tiny Lund eventually won the race in a Ford. In fact, the top five finishers were Fords. The highest finishing "mystery motor" was Johnny Rutherford, who finished Ninth, four laps down.-ed.] What was this mystery motor Chevrolet was running?

Inside Chevrolet Engineering it was called the Mark II, a 427ci V-8 that shared no bloodline with the 409, dubbed Mark I. The word "Mark" is derived from the European tradition, which uses it to designate succeeding phases of a design. Instead, this was a totally new design, beginning in the summer of 1962, when Chevrolet Engineering's Dick Keinath started work on a replacement for the W block. Dick used the same bore centers (4.84 inches) as the W block, so to differentiate the engines in the minds of those working on both, the planned successor was dubbed Mark II. It was this big-bore, short-stroke 427 powerhouse that tore up Daytona's banks.

The Mark III was a 1963 design study similar to the Mark II, but featuring a bigger bore center. None were actually produced, though, since it required too much tooling money at the Tonawanda engine plant to change bore centers. The Mark IV went into production in 1965, displacing 396 ci. Mark IVs were subsequently made in versions of 427 and 454 cid; deck heights were 9.80 inches.

What was kept under wraps at Daytona in 1963-and all through the development process-was the cylinder head design. Fewer than 50 of these engines were cast before GM slipped out of racing in January of 1963. The large-diameter valves were canted, causing them to stick out at odd angles, thus leading to the engine's nickname: Porcupine.

From 1965 until it was discontinued in 1974, the Mark IV big-block was produced in a variety of horsepower configurations. It served duty in everything from mundane station wagons with trailer packages to pavement-melting, steroid-swilling Chevys ruling the streets and the drags.

Even after they were discontinued, the Chevy big-block continued on as the GEN II crate motor powering today's drag cars, street rods, and hottest street machines. And like all great engines, the Chevy big-block will be around for generations to come.

Issue:
General Motors (GM) 7.4L (454 CID)
engines use two types of engine
blocks: the Mark IV and Mark V. The
Mark IV is found on 7.4L engines in
model years from 1965 - 1990, and
the Mark V is found on 7.4L engines
in model years from 1991 and later.
Often, installers will attempt to adapt a Mark IV cylinder head for a Mark V block.
This conversion can be made if attention is paid to the coolant circulation because
the Mark IV and Mark V have different coolant flows, and were
originally designed for different head gaskets. If the conversion is not performed
correctly, the engine will overheat, causing premature engine wear and damage.

Resolution:
CARQUEST Gaskets by Victor Reinz® has designed two Nitroseal® head gaskets
to specifically allow for this conversion. The installation requires that CARQUEST
Gaskets by Victor Reinz® part number 4918 be installed on the right cylinder
bank to maintain proper coolant circulation, and part number 4923 be installed on
the left cylinder bank
for the correct coolant flow.

Application:
Ask for CARQUEST Gaskets by Victor Reinz® part numbers 4918 (right bank)
and 4923 (left bank), or part number 4886 for conventional Mark V applications
and part number 3884SG for conventional Mark IV applications.

I think it is 80 & up mark IV big block engines that has the later improved cooling with the three extra holes.
(look at the gasket info below)
ITS Real easy to drill the holes in the earlier blocks if you don,t have then with a 3/8" drill , using the gasket as a pattern as it was found to increase cooling.

BTW fritz1990 posted this info

Top gasket pic is one with the extra cooling holes. Can use this gasket as a template to drill these 1/2" holes in the deck of the block. All heads already have these holes just some blocks don't.

The holes are the three on the bottom side of the gasket right below the ones between the cyls. The ends of the gasket are also different.

Just don't use the top gasket on your block without drilling the holes. I have to run to work and I can explain the difference later. The top setup is suppose to give you a lil' better cooling but there are many like yours running around, not a real big issue, just better to do it now.

If you have the three holes in the block you can run either gasket.

The bottom gasket is the one you will need to use if you don't drill the holes.

BBC HEAD GASKETS READ THIS LINK
http://www.cartechbooks.com/vstore/show ... apter=7174

Three types of gasket materials are generally available, steel shim, composition and copper gaskets. Cast iron heads can use all three types of gasket materials. Aluminum cylinder heads require the use of composition or copper gaskets. Various compressed gasket thicknesses are offered. Remember that you should have a minimum clearance of .035"-.040" between the top of the piston deck and the deck of the cylinder head when using steel rods. Aluminum connecting rods typically require a larger clearance.
Fel-Pro composition head gasket (PN-8180-PT) for 4.250" bore Mark IV engines. It has two additional holes for head bolts that go into the lifter valley found on some high performance Bowtie and aftermarket blocks.

Different head gasket bore sizes are offered. Mark IV head gaskets have different coolant core hole passages than gaskets for Gen.V engines, blocking some passages and opening other coolant passages. Some block deck coolant core holes are round, while on Gen.V production blocks the holes are irregularly shaped on the block deck. Mark IV heads and head gaskets should be used on Mark IV blocks. Likewise Gen.V style cylinder heads and gaskets should be used on Gen.V blocks. There are exceptions. Mark IV heads can be used on Gen.V "Bowtie" and on Gen.VI HO blocks because the core holes in these block decks will seal the water core holes found on Mark IV heads. If you build this combination then use a Mark IV style head gasket and plug the core hole in the Gen.V "Bowtie" block deck located near the front head dowel pin location (see photo). Otherwise coolant entering the front of the block can bypass the rest of the block and exit out thru the head and intake manifold.

Steel shim gaskets and copper gaskets require the use of head gasket sealant. Composition gaskets do not require sealant.

Head bolts should be completely cleaned and then torqued down in the proper sequence and to the correct torque values. Head bolts or studs, used on aluminum heads, need to have a hardened steel flat washer (PN-3899696) under each bolt head or nut, to prevent damage to the aluminum head surface. Head bolt threads going into water passages should be coated with sealant and head bolts going into blocks with "blind" holes should be coated with moly lube or oil. Some head gaskets do not need retorquing, but it is a good practice to retorque all of the head bolts after the motor has been heated up the first time and allowed to cool down. Remember, do not try to put Mark IV heads on a production Gen.V block and visa versa. You can use Mark IV heads on the new Gen.VI 454 and 502 HO blocks or on "Bowtie" blocks.

BIG BLOCK CHEVY COOLING RELATED INFO

Coolant Routing Mk IV/Gen 5/Gen 6
There are two different ways that coolant can be routed through the engine: series flow and parallel flow. Both ways work just fine. There may be a slight preference for parallel flow, but it is not a big deal. Series flow has the water exiting the water pump, flowing through the block to the rear, it then transfers through the head gasket and into the cylinder head through two large passages on each cylinder bank at the rear of the block. The coolant then travels from the rear of the head, forward to the front of the head, into the intake manifold water passage and out past the thermostat and thermostat housing. The water cools the block first, then it cools the head. The coldest water (coming out of the water pump) is directly below the hottest water (having already picked up the heat of the block and the head) as the hot water transfers into the intake manifold. By contrast, parallel flow has the water exiting from the water pump into the block, where a portion "geysers" up into the head between the first and second cylinder, another portion "geysers" up to the head between the second and third cylinders, another portion geysers up to the head between the third and fourth cylinder, and the remainder transfers to the head at the rear of the block. The coolant temperature inside the engine is more even that way. The differences in coolant routing is having (or not having) the three additional coolant transfer holes in each block deck, and three matching holes in the head gasket. The heads have passages for either system, and are not different based on coolant flow.

Be aware that gaskets that DO have the three extra holes between the cylinders often have restricted coolant flow at the rear--instead of having two large coolant transfer holes at the rear, there is only one, and it's the smaller of the two holes that remains. This is important because if you use a parallel flow head gasket on a series flow block, you can have massive overheating and there's NOTHING that will cure the problem except to replace the head gaskets with ones that don't restrict flow at the rear of the block, or to drill the block decks to allow the coolant to flow into the head between the cylinders. Here's why they can overheat: A series-flow block doesn't have the openings between the cylinders, no coolant can flow up to the head there. The gasket may only have the single, smaller opening at the rear, so the amount of water that gets through that opening is greatly reduced from what the block designers intended. The result is that the coolant flow through the engine is only a fraction of what is needed.

Most, but NOT all Mk IV engines are Series Flow. ALL Gen 5 and Gen 6 engines are Parallel Flow. A series flow block can be converted to parallel flow by drilling 3 holes in each deck surface, and then use parallel flow head gaskets. You can use the parallel flow gaskets as templates for locating the additional holes. It's really easy: Put the parallel flow gaskets on the block, mark the location and size of the three extra holes. Remove the gasket. Grab a 1/2" drill and a drill bit of the correct size, and pop the extra holes in the block. There is NO modification needed on the head castings. Some blocks have one of the holes already, but it needs to be ground oblong to properly match the gasket. Again, very easy with a hand held die grinder and rotary file.

If your getting nostalgic for the real muscle car sound the combos rather well known,and was almost a standard in the early 1970s
keep in mind that those big blocks and dual plane intakes were far more easy to locate, those factory big block intakes, were dual plane intakes with a good deal of the plenum divider wall removed, effectively rendering them neither a true dual plane nor a true single plane design.
Intake Manifold, Aluminum Casting #3933198
The intake should have the number 3933198 for an L88. If it has the number 3919851 it's for a '67 L88.

Image

yes I wish Id saved all those intakes I sold cheap now, most went for under $100 back in the 1970s

3959180 Mechanical Flat Tappet
This mechanical flat tappet is a ZL-1 and LS-7 mechanical lifter competition cam, good in 427-454. (Use spring P/N 3916164.) The duration at lash point in degrees (intake/exhaust) is 327/333; duration at .050" tappet lift (intake/exhaust) is 262/273; and maximum lift with 1.7:1 rocker ratio (intake/exhaust) is 580/620. Valve lash is .024/.026 and lobe centerline is 110 degrees.
Technical Notes: Distributor P/N 1104067 or melonized distribuor gear P/N 1045613 must be used on all crate engines with steel camshafts.
I: .580"
E: .620"
lash I: .024"E: .026"
110 LSAZL-1 and LS-7 mechanical lifter competition cam. Good in 427-454. Use spring P/N 3916164.

now to answer your question, yes Ive used those intakes because they worked rather well, especially with the 3 barrel holley carbs, but they were 1960s-1970s technology and while they worked fine then and still work now, the RPM air gap has a more efficient runner and plenum design
we used to just stick that intake on open chamber rectangular port heads, add a 3959180 solid lifter flat tappet cam, three barrel carb and 12.5:1 trw forged pistons, on 7/16" truck rods, or L88 or L71 RODS when we could find them, in a LS6 or L71 big block, but almost any 427-454 or a 468 displacement was common, it was getting the cam and compression ratio correct , having a 4 speed manual transmission and a 3.90:1-4.11:1 rear gear ratio,and use of the open chamber rectangle port heads that was the factors that made the cars run and sound like they did, slap it in a camaro or nova with slicks and 4.11:1 or 3.90:1 rear gears with a muncie trans and go racing
