If you've got dished pistons, the 305 heads might be worth your while, they'll bring the compression up nicely. Might want to get larger valves put in them, but a little port work etc would go a long way on those.

The 113 heads are corvette aluminum L98 heads, I very much doubt you'll find those. Your best bet is some 083's (L98 heads) or 062/906's (Vortec heads).

Dont expect to find any of those, though.

The '85 should have 416s, but the other wasn't offered. The '87 trucks did get a 305 TBI, but '87 F-cars got either a carb or TPI. Either way, the '87 should have the good 081 heads, but you should pop a valve cover to confirm.
