Need some education

On ford strikers. Com they ask you to select either twisted wedge or inline configuration. Can someone explain this? I've never ordered a crate or short block, or even built a motor from bare block. Thanks

Either piston relief or head choice. Can't see anything else.

They are basically asking if you are using trickflow heads, the twisted wedges, or any other head. Trickflows twisted wedge design moves the valves to the center of the cylinder for better combustion. The reason it matters is because piston to valve clearance is much tighter with the twisted wedge heads opposed to a standard head design. But they flow quite a bit more, trickflow 170s will flow similar to AFR 185s.

Thanks 87, so I'm guessing afrs or other heads not done by trick flow are inline heads? Are they saying the valve port design is what is twisted? I was planning on using afr's based off a desktop dyno build that a buddy did. I'm guessing then that these are inline?

They actually place the valve closer to the corresponding port so I believe runner length is straighter ad shorter

Thanks for the input. So is trick flow the only man. That does the twisted design?
