Vortech, trick flow, or edelbrock?

I was looking at 360 HP trick flow top end, edelbrock top end and a vortech. For a daily driver, which would be my best bet for decent power. I need a little more oomph from my 95 GT vert.

A lot of people daily drive the vortechs. I vote that. All in the tune. And intercool it to make it more reliable.

Do you have any heads or mods done now.the vortec would be most power but if it's stock motor you need to put some aftermarket parts before vortec

I've got a Vortech V3 sci kit on my Fox. I daily drive it. No problems and its been on almost 2 years. I will say this though, it will give you the itch to want to up the boost all the time! Lol

Well bone stock, you have probably $2000 worth of bolt ons first.

-Gears
-Exhaust
-Shifter
-Suspension
-Throttle body
-MAF
-Any interior mods to make it more comfortable

Also the pushrods have to worry about the stock T-5 grenading behind any sort of meaningful power. Some do last for a long time behind a 400hp engine, some blow up behind a bolt on car. Most of the time its 3rd gear that shears the teeth right off but not always...

As for HCI vs Vortech. You'll get more power out of a Vortech and retain the stock driveability. I would do the headgaskets and install ARP hardware though. That's something that can be done in a weekend and this is where a lot of ppl go "well if I'm already in there to do the HGs I might as well put better stuff back on". You can get a GT40 head/intake combo for very cheap out of a JY if you look.

Man you can get some great 2nd hand parts all over craigslist as well as racing junk and others of the nature. You cant believe how many people are in need of cash and are parting out great cars or have old build leftovers sitting around.

Id hold off on making a purchase regardless of what way you decide to go and do some hunting. I recently found a set of professionally ported set of gt40 irons on craigs for a buddy. Drove over to his house ended up grabbing the heads loaded with double springs, crane 1.7 rr's, matching ported gt40 upper and lower, grantanelli #30 maf and #30 injectors, fms b cam, factory fuel rails and a few other random odds and ends for $700
