Did he mention what all custom stuff will be require to run them? Pistons, stud girdles, etc...Yup, I talked to an AFR rep at SEMA and he said they're planning on three new heads with different intake volumes and different amounts of port relocation on the exhaust. He said they're largely focused on increased performance with minimal increases in port volume (high velocity). Should be interesting to see what actually hits the market.
There wasn't any discussion of valve relocation. We did talk quite a bit about exhaust port location though.Did he mention what all custom stuff will be require to run them? Pistons, stud girdles, etc...
Agreed should be interesting! Nice to see at least they are taking an interest. Steve
What "Vandy dude" is saying, DGS, is that there are plenty of street wedge heads on the market and he wants to see more serious racing heads for the Ford--there aren't enough racing wedge heads out there to suit his specific needs. C heads, Thor heads, etc don't quite cut it when compared to the non-Ford competition, they're just not going to be able to support 5000+ horsepower.Not sure what Vandy dudes problem is but I welcome AFR into the BBF world. They produce very nice cylinder heads.
DGS, your response looks sarcastic to me. I'm only explaining where Van is coming from in regards to his response to this cylinder head, as you didn't understand.I don't want to burst your bubble Paul but if you want 5000+ HP you and Vandy better build it yourself, and I'm sure you will.
How is this responsePaul, your response didn't make much sense. Why would AFR make a cylinder head good for 3000+ HP? How many customers would they have? If you and Vandy would have us believe that all other companies are out there to develop cylinder heads only for the end user and profit be damned, you better get your head out of the sand.
Well we will have to wait and see how well they have done their homework on these then.How is this response
It's going to be a second rate street head, just like there small block stuff. If they spent the time and $ to build a good head to compete with the TFS A heads which is great stuff, but older technology, Then think about building a street head based on there reputation that was earned. Thank you TFS for still making great Ford heads for a great price.
Airflow will treat the Ford as second rate, not as an equal to their Chevy line of products. You can belly up to the counter and buy it but I'm going to pass.
