It's a good idea in theory, but the times I've seen it tried, the lack of breathing choked off the 360. Maybe with a ton of porting work, perhaps.
Those old 318 heads have quite a bit of material in them, also was going to try this on with a set of early 273 heads with the heartshaped combustion chamber, but never did get to complete that project.
With 1.88 intakes, I got the old 273 heads to breath better than a stock 360 head, though nothing near what a ported 360 head could do.
If you had the spare parts, it may be something to build just for grins....

Mojo,
If you're talkin about an edelbrock carb up top then you can buy their chrysler throttle linkage adapter part #1481. Whether the torker manifold itself will throw off the linkage geometry I'm not sure. You can play with it a bit if you have to, might have to get a little creative or maybe not.

So uh...whats the odds of finding one of the 318 with the 360 heads straight from the factory....I heard a guy mention them at the boneyard about six months ago and I thought he might be F. O. S. What kinda vehicle would they put something like that in? Man I feel dorky

You wont find such a thing from the factory. Thats a popular swap since the 360 heads beath better and it makes a great power increase when swapped to a 318, but it was never done by the factory.

Actually I'm gonna have to correct DWC here. There were 318's with 360 heads built by the factory. They are commonly referred to as "police package" 318's. They aren't nearly as common as a regular 318 but are still pretty obtainable. Got mine out of a 1988 diplomat squad car. Check the VIN of the vehicle for an S which indicates the Hi-Po engine.

The late 80's 318 E58 police car package engine had swilr port 318 heads and that's one reason it ws such a dog. You'll also find them with a spreadbore intake either a thremoquad or a quadra junk depending on the year. THey will also have a windage tray, and a double roller timming chain. If your lucky it will have the HD colling package with all the tranny and oil coolers and lines too. And some will have roller cam engines depending on what year it is. I drove one for work and I still own a retired one.

alright,
MR 318 has to set everything strait here.
i have a factory 318, block #4387530-318
heads #4027596 (big port 360 head)
came factory

same block # came with4343475 heads (another big port 360)

so, chrysler also sais they put 360 heads on a 318 from the factory, for some police and hi-po applications.

oh, they are not dogs

and, the reason why they dont run as good as you would think? not enough cam and compression for a 360 head

ARGH!!!!!!!!!!! a good power increase??? yeah, if you mill the heads, and cam and tune it for over 5000

just bolt em on????? can you say BOG?

the best way to make a mild 318 (mild means 400 hp or less) is to use old 675 heads, do some minor porting, and a good bowl job. put 1.88/1.60 valves in it and it will out torque the 360 head every time (unless you want to go totally radical)
