Found these two for sale locally.


Used set of trick flow heads. Twisted wedge aluminum. Will fit the ford 302 or 351w. Missing only the guide plates and rocker studs. All valves are new. Call for questions. These are the street heat twisted wedge heads. Which means they have the exhaust ports. They also have 7/16" coils for the rocker studs. All bolt holes will thread with the right sized bolts. No cross threads or stripped holes.



I am selling a brand new set of world products cast iron heads for a 351w new in the box, screw in studs,Guide plates. a new set of Aluminum full roller rockers, new push rods for guide plates, new lifters, and 300H camshaft. and a new electric fan kit for early mustang/cougar i paid over 1500.00 for it all new, and will sell them for $800.00 OR best offer, or trade for Harley parts of close to = value.

They will do the Job and they are good 2.02 Valves are nice The TFS heads are the best IMO. Are you just going to be slapping them on or are you doind some more engine work?

no, they would be for a buildup coming in the winter. Going with the 3881 edelbrock intakes, twin throttle body (edelbrock or bbk) and a new cam that fireguy suggested. i guess flat tappet or roller becomes important, and the one ryan suggested was a flat tappet. i dont know beans about this stuff, which is why Im asking here.

Well since you put it that way, the iron heads with smaller valves and more restrictive ports will probably give you the torque a little lower down than what the Trick Flow heads will.

No, the TFS TW heads have 170cc intake runner which is perfect for low rpm torque. We want 170 - 185 cc for our big ass trucks to keep the power band low. Once you get longer intake runners than that(up around 200cc or more) you really start losing low rpm torque and getting into the higher rpm HP band.

so what really is the best bang for the buck then?

TW seem higher priced but are apparently very nice
Worlds?
GT X40?
Jegs and summit have some now too, there are darts, edelbrock, etc.

is the simplest and best solution just to have my stock heads reworked? I would love to have about 300hp and 350 to 400 torque if thats at all possible. i believe our stock numbers are like 210 and 300 arent they?

Those numbers are very possible, that's what I'm running and I'm still SD. I think having your stock heads reworked would be a waste of money and no matter how much porting you had done to them they still couldn't touch a good set of after market performance heads out of the box. It's hard to say which is the best, they're all pretty good. I would say AFR 185s are the best with TFS TW a very close second. All the rest(Edelbrock, World Products, GT-40(not p) etc) are all pretty equal IMO. Not bad just not as good as AFR or TFS. I got my Twisted Wedge heads for a steal. Summit had them on sale last year for $815 NIB I couldn't pass them up. Like I said earlier if the World product heads are in good shape that's a great price. Don't know how much the TFS heads are but for the right price I'd jump on them.

I don't think so, but I plan on building a 393 stroker now and using the MAF ECM I just Bought from Zilla. That will be a lot more(and it runs like a raped ape right now).

this is very true. mine have 210cc runners. it really starts pulling hard around 3000+ rpm. if i didnt get these heads so cheap, i would have got something in the range rlkbob is recomending.
