Does this really help throttle response on the street a lot? I'm looking at using a solid roller cam, 70 4V heads, a holley strip dominator, and an 850DP (Yeah... plans have changed -- cleves like to rev - I might as well let it do what it does best).

Neal, Having had both 2V heads with 4V valves, 4V heads, and 4V heads with inserts, I would definately go with the 4V heads - no inserts. If you match up the rest of your combo, then the 4V's will serve you best with good low speed torque and excellent top end.

So you would take standard 4V heads over the 4V with Terry Parker inserts?

I also have 4V heads that have been radically redone. ProMod buiilder did my heads and strip dominator intake to match. Engine was a stroker (sure you heard my story about the crank breaking and the engine block split from the oil pan in front all the way through to the distributor and the front two cylinders). I think in my case there was just too much HP for that block. Don't have the flow numbers (heads are 2.19/1.88). Car literally sounded like a 500 inch prostock with 1150 dominator when I fired the car up after the rebuild. car had a 1.32 60 ft with a bad convertor before breaking.

I'm going to the 385 series and wonder what the heads and intake are worth.

Sorry, I got off the subject.

I'm currently running the Roush intake spoons in my Boss 302 heads. A guy named Red up at Roush Industries told me for a stick car, they didn't run the plates, for an automatic, they'd help.

I don't think the inserts are worth the trouble, after fitting them, and matching the manifold.

So, will epoxying the intake ports on the heads to a smaller volume help throttle response on the street or not?
