Default Merlin 320cc, grumpy special head flow?

Have a chance to buy these merlin 320cc iron heads, grumpy special casting. Ho does these heads flow? Going on top of 9.7 to 1 compression, 509cid engine with gm zz502 roller cam. Are these any better than merc stock rec-ports. These are virgin set but would be bowl ported with good seats.

bring a sbc 1.50" exhaust valve w/ you,if you can run it thru the exhaust port,they can be made good.just have to watch out for breaking into the water passage by the short side radius.
