TFS Streets

Thanks! Yes the 290cc versions were used, but the INT ports were opened to the "CJ" runner size and some mild 'clean-up' done on the EXH side.

MIEngineer07 Nice Build. Did you use the street style 290 cc trick flow heads? I am considering using some for a similar build..

My friend got atleast one outing with the Fairmont this last summer. Hes been bogged down with work so hes going to get a roll bar installed this winter and some better rear tires. The car ran some 10.90's in full street trim(Nitto drag radials 275/60 full exh etc)@ a 130MPH. Definetly some potential for mid-low 10's! The transbrake has yet to be used. All in all he was very happy especially since he drove the car to and from the track(30 mile round trip)............

Well the eng is in the car. He has been working on the header fitment and I am helping with the rest of the exh system. Hope to have the car ready in a month or so. I'll get some pics up here tommorrow..........

Devildog On the POS I am trying to port it as much as possible and do CJ port match. Opening up the carb flange and plenum....and thinking of doing up a HVH 4500 adapter like I saw on an EMC engine years ago....Porting the heads and need to flow them and see how they are doing (until I am happy), which is never....lol. The Victor is a 4150 flange as well....not sure how I will address the flange on that one, although it is the same as a 4500 version. Just need to redrill it....might just use it like it is at first with my 4150 1050 to get it running and then go from there. The car is just giving me so much work to get back together, I have not had time to finish up all of the engine work yet........Keep us posted on your progress.....I sure like the heads you are running....D

Have you done any mods to the Offy POS? The TFS Int is hard to beat for an 'out of the box' peice.........What work are you doing on the heads? Steve..........

Devildog It's not together yet because I'm still working on the car. Using flattops, a Victor intake, TFS CJ heads, and 1 7/8" Hookers for now (because I have them). Using solid cam with a bit more duration and a bigger split.....Probably will end up using a Dominator and going to 2" headers. Going to try different intakes to see what is quicker in the car. Still working on the heads and have been working on a Port-o-sonic to try out against the Victor and a TFS intake like the one you are running. Then will end up running a stroker of some kind eventually like everyone else....lol.....D
