my stang with a 406

my uncle made me a deal that i could not pass up, he had a Vega with a 406 in it that ran 10.70 using a 750 carb and tiny 1-1/2 swap headers , he put that motor in a 87 Mazda rx7, all new parts, slicks, new 1000 demon, gauges, shifter..etc..then it sat and he built a 2001 bbc camaro...anyway the mazda is now mine , the motor and tranny are going in my 1980 notch probably sell the Mazda rx7 ,just thought i would share this

had the ported 291 casting and the brodix flowed, and cc-ed, i was not impressed with either set but both are 25 -35 year old heads even the -7 brodix is a early 1980 head, cc for the brodix chamber wa s60 cc and 195 intake runner the double humps where 64 cc chamber and 165 intake runner,the brodix flowed right at 260 @.600 intake and 225 exhaust...the double humps [email protected] intake and 185 ex, so the motor will pick up a lot more with the brodix and i got a deal on some .200 dome top weisco pistons that will put the motor at 14-1 compression

picked up the heads today form the shop, he said that his flow bench is good to just compare one head to another and to check any gains after work, but his is .12% lower then a super flow bench, which makes me feel better that will put the brodix heads at 290 @.0600 lift and the 291 heads at 240 range ..so not bad for 30 year old heads
