Questions? How many people can use 304 CFM at .500 lift? How many people can afford to have the sheet metal intake fabricated that will be needed to go along with these killer heads? Nothing out there right now that is cast can utilize that flow. These things are race only heads that require some serious motor to go along with them.
PLEASE don't get me wrong, I am all for the group purchase and discount pricing, but everyone should probably think their plans through carefully first before considering these heads.

these have small intake ports, only 211 cc's. This is a stock valve angle head, with stock intake and exhaust placement. They are going to work great on my engine. 383 cu. in. I have a ported victor Jr. on the car now. These heads will support some major horsepower. We can also get the CNC ST 5.0 heads in there is you would prefer. I am not real sure about the flow of these heads though, but they will be better than most any other direct bolt on head you can get for a 302/351.

I would be willing to do a M&M group purchase with AFR at our absolute cost + $10 per head for anyone interested. Give me a part number and I'll post the long deal cost. If we get enough people together we may even be able to get the frieght paid.

the Arao heads come complete with everything except the manifold and it takes standard Cleveland manifolds and headers in the case of the 351 C . It even comes in a 2V port size configuration that still flows in excess of 300cfm on the intake side and has torque the stocker 4V heads can't come close to and in your choice of chamber volume. I'm going to have some extra coin to play with later in the year and I was considering a blown 460 but to be honest a 500+ HP stroked 32 valve 2V port sized fuel injected 10.5:1 comp 351C might just be the hot ticket on the street. This is my daily driver and I wouldnt want to go overboard you know.

Alex, correct me if I'm wrong but I think you previously said
you could get them bare or assembled. Do the bare versions
still have the CNC porting? I'm interested in cost for the
P/N 1420 stud mount 185's with 64 cc chambers, bare and
assembled.

This would be for my '87 Mustang GT daily driver. Since it's
slated to get the Novi 1000 supercharger, I'm assuming the 185's
would be preferable to the 165's. I'm hoping to stay with the
stock cam (but 1.7:1 ratio roller rockers) and speed density
electronics, FMU and larger in-tank pump. I'll probably spring
for an aftermarket intake but am undecided on which one. Anderson
Ford Motorsport has an Edelbrock Performer RPM EFI clone intake
made by Professional Products for $350 which looks to be the best
bang for the buck. I'd heard a rumor that this Edelbrock was
somehow involved with this intake but no one seems to have any
info on it.

Thanks Much,
Dan Jones

OK gang, here are the prices.
1402=$1100 pr
1472=$1100 pr
1400=$1100 pr
1422=$1110 pr
1492=$1110 pr
1420=$1110 pr
1490= no such number in price sheet.
205 cc heads are #1450 complete
1450=$1385
These are distributor prices and are my absolute costs. They do not include the $10 per head to cover some paper work or shipping. We will need to order ten (10) pair to get this pricing. Let me know. Always happy to help out M&M members.

Alex,

Do you want to restrict this to M&M only, or should we mention it on other boards? Also, do you have a pricing on bare heads (are they CNC ported or just the assembled heads)?

While agree that that the Arao heads are killer, they cost around $4500. You could build a stroker 460 for that ammount.
Besides since when have the 4V cleveland heads been a limiting factor on any street strip car?

I don't mean to down the AFR heads or anything, but nothing AFR has will compare to this Brodix head.

we are looking at 2250.00 right now, unless I can get a few more people involved. One good thing about these heads, over like the victors, is that they use regular valve train components. These are a new design, from their older Weld Tech cnc heads, and work better and are cheaper. They have the same valve location as a regular Track-1. 2.08/1.60's come with a 248lb on seat solid roller spring and titanium retainers. These are the heads that most of the renagade guys are changing to in NMRA races and Fun Ford. They have increadible low lift flow. and with 304cfm at .500 lift, if you are limited on cam. in your class, would be even better. If someone is interested in these heads for a hyd. setup they may be a little cheaper.

I agree that I could build a stroker 460 for $4600 but whats the difference if money isnt really an object and in this case it's not and I'm not trying to win any sanctioned races. The cool factor in a set of 32 valve heads on a small block ( cleveland ) Ford in my eyes far outweighs the grunt factor of a 460 . I might spend 6 days out of the year on a racetrack. The rest of the time I'm driving to work and to the grocery store. Gas mileage I dont care about but a high winding 32 valve 550+ HP state of the art cleveland is infinitely more interesting than an old truck motor with a long crank. Who cares about what they cost. I'm looking at a big old pot of free money at the end of this year in a bonus from work of one years salary. The house is almost paid for, retirememnts funds strong, wifes got nothing much to bitch about so I can have my toy. She can repaint every room in the house once a week for all I care as long as she doesnt complain about my summit charge account or my chevron bill! The economy might be in the toilet but not around my house so I think I'm going to go for it.

Lookin at 2150.00, that is kind of high when you look at the T-1's for 2250, but they would work increadibly well on just about any smaller cubic inch motor. They are working on the page for the M2 T-1's, and will have it up soon.

Also, If someone wants a really nice set of used heads, I am going to sell my ported T-1's for 1200.00. If you are interested, leave me an e-mail and I will give you flow sheets and info. on them too.

Alex's group purchase price for the assembled AFR 185's is $1110. The ported Brodix head prices are double that. I'm sure those Brodix heads flow very well but I think these two group purchases are being aimed at completely different audiences. For what I need (Novi supercharger with speed density electronics and stock cam with 1.7 roller rockers), the AFR's are more than sufficient.

Thanks,
Dan Jones

good deal Alex, and those AFR heads work very well according to a buddy with them, he compared features and flow with several others before buying AFR's.

All out race heads are not the hot ticket for street cars... there is such a thing as velocity to consider.

That is absolutely true. That is why Brodix has made these increadible heads with small runners and big flow. The ST 5.0s flow a hell of alot of air through a 185cc runner, and the T-1's through a 211cc runner.

I know that these heads are for serious power, and not for just your every day street car. I have had a few more people get in on this one from A couple of other boards. Good luck everybody. Those are good prices on the afr's.

I think we are having "a failure to communicate". I still need the prices on the bare heads (to go with the prices that you provided for the assembled heads) so I can put together an info sheet to post on other boards and email lists. I also need to know if the bare heads have the same CNC porting as the assembled versions.

BTW, I'm heading back out of town for a few days so I may be slow to follow up.

Thanks,
Dan Jones

OK, I'll look up the bare head numbers and post them also.

Alex, if its okay with you, I'm going to foward this info on the possible group purchase on to a guy who runs a "Group Purchase" club over at Yahoo Groups. He has a very large membership that I'm sure would be very interested in the AFR heads purchase.

Just lemme know if it would be okay with you to forward your contact info to him.

Don't you think the 32v's would be hard on the valve train?

I think the 32V heads violates the KISS principle that most successful performance engines follow.

Dan, I have not heard from anyone but Stewart as of yet. I will post prices on any or all part numbers that you request. If I had a scanner I would post the whole damn price sheet. Just too much to type at once.

Dan, I spoke with some folks at AFR awhile back and they said that the bare heads would need "extensive porting" to match the CNC flow numbers.. They also said that the bare heads come with all machine work completed except that the valve seats need "kissed"..

Alex,

>Dan, I have not heard from anyone but Stewart as of yet.

I haven't posted the group buy anywhere else yet. I still need some
additional information (see below).

>If I had a scanner I would post the whole damn price sheet. Just too much to
>type at once

Do you have access to a fax machine? If so, send me a copy and I'll
scan it in for you. In any event, I need the prices for the bare versions
of the heads you listed above. This is so I can put together a complete
announcement of the group buy. To minimize the questions asked by
potential purchasers, I planned to put together an announcement with
the prices and descriptions for all the heads involved (bare and fully
assembled), along with a link to AFR's website. If someone wants in
on the deal, the anouncement will direct them to respond to your email
address. Hopefully, this will keep us from having to answer the same
questions over and over again.

Thanks, that's what I needed to know. I was hoping the bare heads were
CNC ported, requiring only a valve job and clean up. I have access to valve
grinding equipment and that would have saved me some $$$.

Thanks,
Dan Jones

I might be able to get this purchase done Alex. After all now is the time, and I should be getting my tax returns in soon. I also will be selling my Crown Vic soon. Of course I'm not exactly rolling in the dough (lots of debt, student loans, etc).

I am not sure what I need, so I started another thread.

We have a dedicated 24-7 fax Dan. Post or e-mail me your fax number and I'll cut up the price sheet and fax it to you asap. I will be buying a new computer next week and it will have a new scanner/copier/fax system with it.

That's a problem. I've got the list of part numbers and prices ready to go but posting it today on the other sites won't give people enough time to react. Only a couple of people on this list have expressed interest, so we don't have the minimum number of orders. I guess we need to drop back and punt.

Some of the guys that are interested are giving me deadlines Dan. I am not certain if I can realisticly meet them. SO far we only have 4 commitments and about a dozen maybes. I can't believe for this price that there is not more interest. Even AFR called me yesterday looking for the order.

Those ARE good prices.
Too bad I am up to my neck in Cleveland parts.
Windsor guys should really consider this deal. You will regret it later.
I just wish I had the dinero to switch platforms.....
