I wish somebody would buy something like these cheaper aluminum heads . Or at least admit to it . I would like to try ther SVT heads from LMR. I bet they might be good . I cant do $1800 ,. to many other things. Im golng to the local machine shop that builds race engines and ask about porting my e-7 s with the Trickflow spring kit. I know its a bad idea but hat way I dont have to buy a bunch of extras.
Flo tech looks real good . Did you see the article on building a 300 hp 302 . Flo-tech was featured ,and many good things were said about them . I have a daughter thats in her senior year in college and Im down $100,000 I inherited some money and my wife wanted this . But I cant get money for heads . I should have , or wished I had grown some balls.
Funny enough we have a 94 vert we just dropped a 393 winsor tko 600 trans and 9inch rear end into and the motor happens to have these heads. I do have to agree with the quote on “ seem to not make power “ we have a 393 with a comp cam believe the lift is .555 forged internals and an edlebrock intake set up that cost around $1400 its got 2 4 barrel carbs on top and it dynoed 415 hp and 454 torque at the flywheel we were instantly disappointed in the heads. They are the procomp 3037 185 heads. We barely have 500 miles on the build and my dad already plans to spend tax money on arf or an equivalent.... :/Working an extra shift overnight tonight and have more downtime, so I've searched for a bit more information about these heads. It appears that they are indeed the Pro Comp 3037 heads. Googling the FF part number gives a few sites that cross reference them both. I also ran into a thread on Corral from 2007 that the poster wasn't able to center the rockers on the valve tips. Who knows if this is still an issue. (That's a rhetorical statement....)
I just acquired a pair of Pro Comp Pc3037 heads from a trade. Here are the specs: These heads feature a multi-angle seat design for performance valve springs. In addition, they have hardened seats and bronze valve guides. The advanced port design allows greater flow. This is the 190cc, angled...forums.corral.net
Among other websites, I also found this one. It looks like maybe it is from a middle man to connect you with the manufacturer? In any event, from what I gather from the site is you're able to get the bare castings for $1 if you order 5 or more. Who knows what shipping costs and all of that would add to it, but damn! That gets the wheels turning!!
But then I remembered about the dropped valve seat and searched to see if I could find that. Lo and behold it was right here on Stangnet!! So those turning wheels ended up coming to an abrupt halt. It's most likely better to stay the course with the projects I have going on right now vs spending money on these then turning around and spending more money on them to make them work reliably. I have a feeling that by time it was all said and done I'd have just as much money in them as I would if I'd invested in some Trick Flows or Edelbrocks.
Hey i know its been a long time since i was on, so hey everyone. i had other interests occuping my time. any way i have seen the error of my ways and come back to the car! so here is the issue at hand, i am soon to return to the states and my projects and once again have been considering my...www.stangnet.com
Update on the Jeg's attempted purchase: they are denying the price match from the other website stating it's from a different manufacturer since the description lists it as an interchange part number. Back to square one.
