Im in the process of building a 427 windsor. It has a dart 9.5 deck iron eagle block. Trick flow high port heads that I got from Fox lake with thier stage 3 porting and thier pro exhaust.Pro systems 4150 carb, super victor intake ported to match heads.Have a lunati pro series 4"crank and 6.2 oliver rods. Im waiting to buy pistons. Block has roller cam bearings and lifters are bushed. I want to make it 14-15:1 comp with a custom built cam. It is going in a 275 drag radial 90 mustang trunk back.Stock suspion with a glide. Car should be around 3000 with me in it. What kind of power should I expect out of this combo? Et and mph guess? It has been a long project and i am getting ancy..Thanks..

With enough durtaion and lift from the camshaft..... Theres no reason you can't make 750HP.

Et if the car is hooking, should run 9.50s @ around 140-143ish mph.

I love the high port heads!!! Done a few sets for variouse applications. finishing up a set right now that i feel on a maxeffort motor should be capable of over 800HP on a 400+ inch motor.

x2 on the high ports.....I think a lot of folks don't realize just how good those heads are for making power.

At 3000 pounds, I think you will run faster than 9.50's.... or should with the right camshaft, converter and gearing.

Thanks for the input. Any of you have any luck with the foxlake stuff? We are going to pull the heads apart and im going to go all titanium valves and dont know if i should sink more into the porting?

TEA has a 255cc highport with 2.125" valve flowing at or near 390cfm and right at 300cfm on exh. that would help on the big 427" engine.

i ran stage 3 fox lakes. i agree with the rest the highport is a killer standard valve head. with all the hype and new designs highports still hold there own

Has anyone actually bought a set of these? That number seems way too high. I know Kuntz/M2 had a set that were about 370. They used adpater plates on the exhaust. But 390?????

Lets keep it constructive, and not criticize any one particular shop... the claim can be made about cfm or capability without mentioning direct names. If I leave that up, it'll just turn into a war of words when his folks come to defend.

Not saying this to piss anyone off, but just help me keep that from occuring.

Thanks in advance!!

+1,I went 9:40's with significantly less than 750 hp,for inline valves...the highport is STILL one of the best out there.

I highly recommend them as well,they did mine and they perform flawlessly. TEA also know they are doing.Jeff Tyson on here had a set of TW's that they ported that had some ungodly flow numbers,he went LOW 5's on a regular basis with them.
