Are the TFS High Ports Canted valves? If so, those seem to be the best for the average budget racer.

I was running Canfield 192s on my 427 and have just switched to AFR 225s. No numbers with the new heads yet, but with the Canfields, the car went [email protected]8 with 4.10 gears and [email protected] with 3.73 gears. That was at 3000 lbs.

Chances of finding anyone on this site with the heads you listed is highly unlikely

All those heads will work good on a big inch stroker.


Yates heads are not canted valve. They are a 'twisted wedge' type configuration.


There's a thread in the 'cleveland forum' where a guy has some dyno numbers on a 427 with CHI heads. I think it was in the 800 horsepower range.

1969 fastback street car project underway.

Beware of leftist/liberals/democrats posing as Americans.

a C-3 or B-2 canted aluminum head from back in the mid 1980's era.....
next would be a brodix-neal head.

I have gone down the road that you are only now about to travel.
tires are the great equalizer
a degree wheel, EIGHT INCH dial caliper & adjustable pushrods should be just as normal as a 1/2" wrench in your toolbox
there aint no shortcuts to doing it RIGHT....
