I agree Mike but that one set of heads proved to me that this stuff is all over the board when it comes to "ported heads". The cost of flowing heads, $75 is well worth getting that part of the info as you well know.

SHDYS1969,
I don't want to speak for Mike but I feel he would agree. Without the flow numbers you might as well rip out the BBC roller cam section of Lunati's book and tape it to the wall, stand back 10 ft and throw a dart at the page to pick a camshaft.

Not knowing the flow numbers is like not knowing the cubes of the engine. They are part of the process to selecting a camshaft.

Street Car for play: Flow 1 or 2 cylinders. BBC must flow short and long ports

Bracket Car: Best to flow 2 ports on each head and take an average.

Heads up Comp Car: Flow all ports with intake attached and header attached that will be run.
