It should say "Edelbrock" etched into the end of the cylinder heads, might have to clean it a bit if there's oil and grime covering it.

As for the gaskets, I'd call Trick Flow and ask them to send you the right bits. And unfortunately, I think that list of modifications is too incomplete to make any sort of estimation of power. So if I had to guess... somewhere between 225 and slightly more than 225.

EDIT: also I believe '93s had cast, not forged, pistons.

Good heads, decent cam, ok intake. Prolly 270+ when tuned. I'll assume the fuel system has been addressed.

What i mean is the engine have been rebuild and they added forged piston because it's a 93 ( no forged piston stock )
What intake came on the car already installed? Have you driven the car or did you have to tow it home? Go to LMR website and look up intake gaskets for a trick flow intake manifold.

I spy with my little eye, stock 19# injectors! Maybe this guy didn't finish his engine build? I'm curious what fuel pump you have, maybe the stock 88lph? You'll need to verify. You're fine for now with the stock intake being a big bottle neck but when you get around to installing the intake you'll want to add 24# injectors, MAF calibrated for the new injectors, and 190lph or 255lph fuel pump.

One more thing, you may or may not need that intake spacer. Make sure you test fit everything. You're looking for clearance for your throttle linkage (needs to clear valve covers) and if you use the spacer you may have clearance issues with your hood. While your installing your intake, please reconnect the EGR coolant lines and make it functional again. Deleting or disabling the EGR does not increase HP in any way.

Thank you !! So 24# injectors i'll verify for the fuel pump . For the clearance here my hood i think i'll be ok ...Do you have any more suggestion of what i should look to add ?

Very nice car! Looks like the hood will clear easily :nice: A couple things I forgot to add is that I would change out the stock throttle body for one that matches the inlet diameter on your Trick Flow intake (75mm I think). What ever size throttle body you end up with you'll want to size your MAF just a little bigger (70mm TB/75mm MAF or 75mm TB/80mm MAF). Typically 24# injectors have blue tops while your 19# injectors will normally be orange.
