Re: need help with heads

welcome :thumbs2:

Ford racing parts aren't bad. There are more brands, such as trickflow, holley, patriot. I honestly don't know too much about which heads and internals are best, but I'm sure someone here can better assist you.

I'm sure you would want to upgrade other internals since you're already tearing the engine apart. No sense in paying for labor twice.

Unfortunately, even with heads (and especially considering the amount of work needed for the heads install)- the best way to get power out of a 2v head is to go with a supercharger..
