I would use the the TW heads. They are both good heads. BUT TW's are aluminum, 50lbs less plus you be able to run more timing and/or boost with them.


New build in progress: Twin Gen 2 PT6466 352

Old combo:352 single 76mm turbo, 16psi, AOD, 9.41 @ 149mph, E85, 255/50/16 MT DR, 3500lb STREET car driven everywhere.

i was told the high ports i could run more timing and boost.plus they wont run as hot.also i was told they wont lift like the aluminum heads could do.plus i was told the high ports will make more tq and power over the twisted wedge...

Highports are the bomb for sure.

TW's will work just as good though, work better with off the shelf turbo kits
are cheaper and will support enough power to break the block.


I'd just go with the 170 Twisted Wedges.

aluminum > cast iron on boosted motor

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep sitting down and voting on whats for lunch.
