I purchaced some edelbrock rpm heads (1.90/1.60) heads a few years back and they gave me almost 5mph in the 1/4 mile. For 1200 cdn I tought they were a very good deal. Had stock 351w heads before the swap with good springs.
I've read a lot of stuff written by Jay. Seems to be one of the best around and has a loyal following of very happy and successful customers. I'm quite impressed with his reputation and will most likely be in touch with him on a future build. Read about a pump gas solid flat tappet 289 he built that ran 10.7 or .8 first time off the trailer in a 3,200 lbs car on motor. Shifted it at only 7,200 rpm if I remember right. He claimed it was built with "junk parts" he had lying around.On 2006-04-07 00:54, mikemustang289 wrote:
One thing you might want to consider, regardless of which heads you choose, is a custom cam. After spending about half an hour on the phone with Jay Allen, there is really a lot more to making power than just heads, the cam has a lot to do with it as well, but there is a lot more to it than just duration and lift. After I had already purchased my heads, and it was too late, I talked to Jay about the cam he designed for me. At the same time he told me of a complete package he sells, Canfield heads (not sure which model now), his cam, and matching springs all for roughly $1600.
It's a good deal when you consider the fact that a set of AFR's go for over 1300 with junk valve springs. and he says these heads will actually make more power on a 302 with one of his cams. Here you'll now exactly what to expect and there is no guess work. Check out his sight http://www.camshaftinnovations.com
If anything, just contact him via email or send in a build sheet, tell him what you want to do, or what you want to accomplish e.t. wise, and he can set you on the right path.
I'd be really interested to find out more about this 289 build... do you have a link to anything on it?On 2006-04-07 12:28, 289nate wrote:
