But those numbers sure sound good if i could make that kind of power i would be more than happy with my 283. And i do really appreciate everyone's help.

Engines have been proven to show less wear and have better milage with EGR, not to mention no power gains are almost never shown from removing it. It's another automotive old wive's tail. It only comes into effect during high vacuum situations (cruising) and has no effect on WOT power if it is functioning properly.

I should note that those 416 flow numbers I used were from a set of mildly worked heads- nothing you couldn't do yourself with about 15 hrs time and the right tools. They also had 1.94/1.5 valves which are stock size for most 350's and can be bought and installed relativley cheap.
