Oh and that's total.... Not per head
Thats awesome. from I've read about the ported and polished Ford heads on AM, I think you will yield similar results with this guy. CNC will more accurate, but porting and polishing is still huge by hand. Those Ford heads are almost a $1,000 each on AM.

I have the ford racing intake manifold with a bbk twin 62 tb, and a jlt cai and yes you do not feel the power till 4k. I also have 4.10 gears. Ive decided to do a whipple instead of a centrifugal sc so when that time come the intake manifold will be going up for sale cheap.

I am pretty sure I lost low end torque. I'm having a lot of trouble getting to the stock 1/4 mile times at all. I have a feeling if I did heads and cams it would be a totally different beast.

If a TB had such serious gains as manufacturer claims, the dynos would be everywhere.
I never said you can just bolt a tb on. It takes h/c/i all working together. The dyno results are every where, just not on a fourm where 80% want to talk about plastic dipping. Those that have success feel no need to post dyno slips. They let ther time slips do the talking. This fall when I have my motor built, I'll post you an engine dyno sheet, not to the wheels HP dyno sheet, that's a yuppie thing. The only real way to test a mod, is on the track..!!!!!!!!!

Thanks guys for all the helpful input, I think I am going to go with the Brenspeed cams, looks like you get most performance for street use out of these.
One more question, is the cam wedge tool worth the $90 to install the cams?

I am pretty sure you can pick up a timing chain wedge tool for 25 bucks most anywhere. All it is is a piece of old cheese on the end of a metal rod. Seriously though 90 sounds too much.
