Trickflow 170's overkill on close to stock 302?
My original engine build up plans, of which I have all the parts for, is GT40P heads, Explorer intake and injectors, stock cam, 65mm TB, and shorty headers. Car is an 86 GT with 3.55 gears, modified exhaust.
I am considereing the Trickflow twisted wedge 170 heads in large part because of the ease, bolt on and go, versus checking PTV and possibly having to get the valve reliefs done by someone. And I still have to get the GT40P's checked and could be looking at some machining work costs. I really the idea of taking off weight from up higher on the front end of the car. I was going to stay with the stock GT cam, so no plans to switch from speed density. Would I loose power in the lower rpm's versus the smaller valves and ports on the GT40P heads? Would I really gain much considering the mildness of the rest of the engine? Thanks greatly for any feedback.
