    There nothing like AFR's but atleast I didn't have to wait 8+ wks for them. The CNC work is minimal but they do look nice. For the price I paid for them, it would've been nice to see a little more effort put into them.

    The heads came out the box and appeared to have been washed. I rember when I got my AFR 210's they had metal shavings all over them. The Trick Flows seemed to be ready to go!

    Tomorrow I'll measure the chamber cc's, build them up and get them installed. I'm hoping this combo does the TRICK because stock was so gay. The flow numbers below came off the TF website. I wonder what the stock TBI flow number where?. I can tell these heads would benifit from some hand work! but since there going on my truck and not my Vette it ain't gonna happen.

    There going on a 10.1 TBI 355 with a 219@.050 .525 cam. Edelbrock TBI manifold (bored out), Holley 670cfm TBI unit, Thorley headers, Flowmaster etc.... Tell me what you guys think of the combo. I'd rather hash out issues now before I get everything installed.

    The combonation sounds perfect. The 10:1 compression sounds a little high, but it will be doable. It will be a good performing engine, without having to do any major amounts of custom TBI building and tuning. I want to build Big Block along similar lines.

    Yeah you would think by now you wouldnt have to wait at all for afr heads , i had the same deal before with some, and it turned the deal off basically.

    Waiting sucks. Id like to hear the end result of the build .Post it up when your done! If your happy with it and what not.
