    Helping my son build another 383 sbc. He ordered several parts
    about 8 months ago. Among them were a set of headers and a
    set of profiler heads;however he cancelled the profiler heads
    order after 8 or so weeks since they were not available and got
    the run around.
    He has since ordered a set of Brodix heads which have rectangler
    exhaust ports. The headers he previously ordered for the Profiler
    heads are oval port.
    Must he get headers to match the Brodix heads or can he use
    the oval on rectangler?
    Car will be a daily driver.

    For a daily driver I'd be sure that the gaskets seal and run what you've got. The mis-match may create a bit of turbulence, which is actually a help in scavenging the cylinders. Matching ports doesn't really add much value, especially at low to mid-range rpms and at cruise.
    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    If you can make it work without leaks, go for it.
    Education is expensive. Keep that in mind, and you'll never be terribly upset when a project goes awry.
