Re: cylinder heads

I was assuming you were not going to rev it to 6500rpms etc

Afr are the "flavour of the month" at the moment.

It all comes down to $$$$$ and application.

Re: cylinder heads

I second the Twisted Wedges. The AFRs are very good, just a bit too pricey because of all the CNC machining they require.

it would be nice to have a set of heads that arnt straining at high rpms,doing it easy, and there would be room for improvment in the future for more mods.
