    So I'm playin with Desktop Dyno,and have pretty much everythign figured out and dialed in except for the heads. My motor has the "peanut port" heads. Oval port. I don't know which of the availble selctions most closely match my heads. Here's apicture of the avaialbe choices-

    My best guess was the Canted/Oval Stock ports, Stock Valves. Am I way off base? It seems to make good torque numbers....Nice and flat from under 2k rpms to 4500.

    Anyways....Who's got a clue? I sure don't..:crazy:

    Do you know the casting #'s of your heads? The only way you will get any kind of accurate estimate is to use the custom port flow option. Search google for flow numbers for your heads and enter them into there (Desktop Dyno probably has your heads already in its database).

    yup... everyone that bitches about the desktop dyno being way off needs to use the custom port flow feature.

    ^^^ Those aren't the same heads. I couldn't find flow numbers for the 14092360 heads but what wicked jester posted is what you are looking for.
