Can't go wrong with those heads, but you can find them cheaper than that site.

Check here. They are good heads but honestly I would look into some 2.02 valve heads. But I do know some people that like them.

I run trick flow heads with 2.02 valves with b cam and 1.72 rr and have clearance all day. But that is because they have redesigned combustion chambers .

By all means the performers are good heads especially for the price. I paid 1200 for mine. But I got about 70$ off with the forum discount. But then I had to buy pushrods which made back up that 70$

Re: EDELBROCK PERFORMER heads

I have a set of Performer RPM heads that I have had on my car for over 10 years. So far no problems with them whatsoever.
I'm using the X303 camshaft, but you need to go to CamQuest to see what will work best with your combination.
They also come with either the 1.90 or 2.02 intake valves, you just need to be sure what will work with your engine.
Edelbrock is also making a couple of new set of heads called the E-Series & E-Street, you should contact them to see what would work best with your mods or plans.

so the camquest is going to tell me what cam is safe to run without benting the valves.

I think its more to tell u what lift and duration to make the best power. When u change your heads you will still have to check ptv clearance.

You can still get edelbrocks cheaper if you need a lower priced head to fit your budget. Check summit racing. They have a very large selection of heads.

Like I said you will also need pushrods with these heads. So factor that in. But I couldn't be happier with them.

I dont remember exactly what stock combustion chamber is but those are similar. So they won't change your compression ratio to much. Maybe only a couple 1/10 ths at most.

Ford 289-351W Performer RPM Aluminum Cylinder Head. Designed for non-emissions 289, 302, and 351-Windsor Ford engines, these direct bolt-on heads deliver maximum performance in the 1500-6500 rpm range. For the performance street racer the Performer RPM #350-6025 has high-flow 2.02'' intake valves which require aftermarket pistons.
