C.O.M.E racing

Does anyone know how reputable these blokes are for x-flow 6's, i know they make good stuff for v8's and make some damn fast ones, i was thinking of buying a whole cylinder head package and camshaft, springs, lifters...etc

I was considering a stage 3 (300hp+) or braket master head (325hp+), also i know nothing about cams but im leaning too the hydraulic csbr 436, power range of 2500-6500, intake 290 duration and exhaust 297, but they dont specify which cams are good for my engine

Is this stuff to brutal for the street in a 6 cylinder? any ideas or suggestions?

Re: C.O.M.E racing

Hang on turns out they do suggest something for the x-flow

CLH 280
intake-268
exhaust-278
lobe seperation-112

Quote:
HYDRAULIC: Moderate idle. Excellent overall power. Works best with aftermarket dual plane intake, extractors and 4-barrel carb. Strong pulling power over broad power range. Stock compression O.K. "Streetmaster" heads recommended. RPM Range 2200 - 5500. Ideal high performance grind in 9.5:1 Ford X-Flow with our S.T-3 head. Needs 2500 converter or manual transmission.
Sounds like a much more streetable cam.

Re: C.O.M.E racing

I had a come head and cam setup done on my XF 6 and it was a great power up. I sold it all for cheap too. If only you came along earlier.

It was the stage 3 head which cost $1100 from memory and a bigger cam. I cant remember the name of it though. I also put on a new manifold, 465 holley and a regraphed dizzy. It got me 140ish rwkw.
Power came on strong at 2800rpm and died off at 6500rpm. The bottom end wasnt happy after a few months. Then stupidly I got a bolt stuck in a valve so the engine came out and a worked 351 went in.
It was a fair beast of a car.

They do great work but Ive heard they are a bit on the expensive side.

Re: C.O.M.E racing

Have got one of thier stroker Clevelands and their work is prob a bit more expensive - but you get what you pay for in this caper. Looked into one of their Xflow packages but for the dollar probably better off going upto an eight for mine.

thats the thing you will only get so much out of the x-flow, thats why im torn between a 351 and the 6, but i thought i'll just see how much power people can get out of them before i make my mind up

Re: C.O.M.E racing

Ill have a look and try to remember.
I found an old thread, it was a CLH 191.

I would go the 351 for bang for your buck.

Re: C.O.M.E racing

It was a 4 speed manual with 2.92 diff. It could have used a 3.23 diff though. Sometimes I was caught out of the rev range of the cam in the wrong gear and it was a bit sluggish until it wound up.
It was a big push in the back though.

Re: C.O.M.E racing

Their stage 2 head is worth $990 but stage 3 is $1200.. Pretty hefty pricing if you ask me.

Re: C.O.M.E racing

But well worth it I say. I wish I hadve taken a pic of the difference.

Still for the cash I say put in a V8.

My 351 was auto and would have smoked the worked 6 all day every day.

Also consider the age of your bottom end, mine was starting to blow smoke as the rings were dying. It could rev way higher than it supposed to.
