4v head swap or trick flow heads?

Hey everyone I have an 02 gt 2v I got a guy selling 4v heads out of an 01 cobra w/ 03 cobra cams for 400$ this includes the timing chain and etc... But would a 2v trick flow twisted wedge give me more power?

Trickflow out of the box flows better and saves the aggravation of swapping to a 4v but a very well ported 4v heads will out flow the trickflows

That topic is beat to death they have their pros and cons. What exactly are you doing? Stock bottom end? Budget? Goals? "Reasonable" budget for one person is completely different for another person. You will likely spend nearly as much on 4V heads in the end as the TFS heads new or at least a set of good ported PI heads. The Terminator cams are not anything to write home about anyway, the 96-98 Cobra cams were the best OEM 4V cams.

Don't you actually LOSE hp doing a 4v swap on a 2v?

I BELIEVE it brings the compression ratio down losing hp. But if you add a supercharger while your at it, that will be perfect lol
