I like trick flow and afr, the gt40, gt40p, and gt40x are good however they are more of a budgeted head. I just got rid of my gt40ps they flow a lot better than stock e7s but wouldn't hang with trick flow 170s or afr 185s

Trick flows are expensive but amazing results in my opinion

Re: heads what's the best for ur money??

It all boils down to budget and power goals. A couple hundred for 20-30hp isnt that bad especially when you consider it cost 800-1200avg for a good set of aluminum heads.

In my opinion AFR's are not worth the money at all. I run a set of port and polished Windsor jr. Iron heads that flow 10x better then the afr 205's I use to have

Sorry, but I find that hard to swallow.
I'd have to see some actual flow tables to believe they were that much better if any.
A set of polished and ported AFR 205's would flow some serious numbers, plus they would remove a considerable amount of weight off the front end.


Not arguing with you or dissing your opinion, just stating my own opinion.

No the AFR's were not machined in any way. What I'm trying to say is I bought a set of Windsor jr iron heads striped em and had them ported and polished and they flow better then my 205's did. And buying the heads and getting them ported and polished cost less then just buying the AFR's

Ok, I see what you mean now, but I still think you'd have been much better off keeping the AFR's and porting & polishing them.

I spend so much on the heads and didn't want to put any more money into it. Just thought sense I dropped all this money on them they would flow better then they did.
