Was wondering if anybody has any flow numbers or have seen what you can get out of a set if P-51s? Thanks!
It might seem like Jon is just advertising so, I can answer this one...

Maximum air flow is not the beauty of these heads - the air flows at .400", .500" are tremendous and it's over 400 cubic feet of air at only .600" of valve lift.
These are absolutely the best "Street/Strip", moderate valve lift heads of any brand I have yet seen; (excluding the hemi's).

Although, personally with extensive porting I have gotten a maximum of 434 intake and 260 exhaust at .750" valve lift. I have seen maximum air flows a little better than that with a steeper angle valve job but, then air flow somewhat goes away at the mid valve lifts.

EDIT: Lately some people have put these heads on some 550" or so racing only engines and gotten some very good, eye opening results.

The reason i was asking was i have a 521 with bme rods, bryant crank, and diamond pistons.. got the heads from lem, and as you all know, competition never gets slower so i was seeing what a port-job will gain me! We got almost 400 out of a set of scjs, i just didnt know if i could get that much jump up with p-51s or not. From what im seeing, im gonna port them for sure! Ill let the dyno tell us for sure! Thanks Guys

magazine # are just that:) depending which mag ya pick up the numbers are all over the place, for the scj's summits ad says 330-225 then jons site says 345-225 then on his same site the p51 vs. scj add says the scj flows 318-214 so i guess the flow is whatever writeup ya want to believe in.
