cool My new heads!!!

I just picked these up tonight! It took me 1 1/2 hours to leave my work coz everyone was looking at them. They're Pro topline alloy heads, 180cc intake and 58cc combustion chamber. Please excuse the photos and the heads are also covered in finger prints. Heres also a pic of the old heads that'll be coming off to make way for the new.

Re: My new heads!!!

Wow..... nice dude. I heard of those heads, there from New Zealand company right. A mate of mine is doing up a windsor for his mustang and was looking at these heads maybe for his car. I'd like to hear how they go on your setup, and if you don't mine me asking how much did they cost landed here in Australia. Keep us updated on ya motor

Re: My new heads!!!

Pro Action make a good product for small block chev. Huge flow numbers out of the box. Hopefully the ford heads are as good.

If I may ask what made you choose these heads over others like Trickflow R, Victor etc?

Re: My new heads!!!

zc347, do you have any larger photos? Do you have photos of the ports, I'm especially interested in the valve guide boss area.

Re: My new heads!!!

OK guys, I bought them from Searle Racing equipment here in Perth. They were about $1900 bare. I chose these over others as they had some good flow numbers and small-ish runners for what i wanted. the exhaust ports are raised 3/8's of an inch, where-as trickflows are raised a lot higher i think. I didn't want to change headers just yet.

I've got some bigger pics in my gallery but i'll post some more up for you !GN|T|ON.

Re: My new heads!!!

Thanks zc347, what beautiful bowls you have! That's pretty much the shape that the ported E7's I've seen have, do you intend to smooth them out a bit or are you going to install them as is? I guess after spending the best part of $2k, I wouldn't want to touch them, I only ask as from the above picture the port walls look slightly porus. Is this the case? It's hard to tell.

Re: My new heads!!!

Nice heads pro topline~ i have AFR heads on mine. www.airflowresearch.com they have the most CFM flow~ they even have 205cc !!! I have there 180cc with 67cc~ =D ~ pro topline are good ones~ it all depends on your valve springs, rockers, lifters, stroke, compression, etc. Just match up the right camshaft to your heads and your ready to go~ 75% HP/TQ comes from your heads~ the 25% is from your block.

Re: My new heads!!!

Yes I read Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords they gave the AFR's a big rap in all cfm's. I'm looking at getting a set of 205's for new 302 i'm building for the Cortina.
