both good points guys! Thanks. I do have to run 93 octane and still get some pinging occasionally. So you think the heads will help that?
And yes, i did consider the weight savings but didn't know if it would be noticeable.
I have no front bumper or bumper brackets, fiberglass hood, aluminum radiator, battery in the trunk, etc. and she doesn't feel that nose heavy. I have had it 26 years so I'm used to it but I have driven other small block Mustangs and it's not bad.
I recently added electric power steering assist after years of fighting the parking with no PS. Wow what a difference! No noise, no pump, in fact under the hood you still couldn't tell it has PS.
So another question, If I go with the heads and I already have the high CR, would a bigger cam hurt drivability or be worth it? Again, I don't know if I would notice a .3 on my timeslip but if it sits me back in the seat when I mash the go pedal, I am happy!
