Post Trick Flow heads.....Should I go for them?

Ok,
I have a 2 Bolt 350.

Bored .30 over with Hypereuctic pistons. Speed Pro. .125" Dome with the Anti-Friction Coating

Using the stock crank and rods.

Performer RPM intake. Plan on 1.6 Roller Rockers as well.

Cam is 230/230 and .480/.480..102 intake...110 lobe

I have a pair of 305 H.O heads on it right now but they are coming off. I plan on purchasing a pair of either the Twisted Wedge G2 heads or a pair of the 23 degree heads with the CNC-Chambers.

My question is, Should I shoot for them? AND, do you think I will make too much power for the rods/crank to handle?

The 305 heads are going bye bye no matter what. Dont want the headache they will give me. Hehe.

I would go for it. I dont think with that cam you will make more power than what the parts will take. Those heads will also give you room to grow.

there's some damn reason not to get the twisted wedges because you have to buy some other parts combinations for them or they need something else machined, but i'll be damned if i retained that knowledge, hopefully somebody else can help

Hmm..

Well if you guys have any other suggestions for heads then let me know.

I would like to get the best pair I can for around $1200 or so..

If you can suggest a better intake to use with the heads, then let me know that as well.

Thanks

If someone could throw out a Guesstimate as to what power I would see from my setup With the TrickFlow heads, thad be great.

(Just wanna see if my guess is the same as everyone elses)

well this i can tell you, in posts from the past, everybody just digs the hell of of the AFR's. they were used alot in the PHR engine masters challange. i think the guy who won used the twisted wedgies tho. all of those top engines cost about $15K plus to build tho.

I think that trick flow is the best for anything other than an all out race engine. If you look at their flow numbers, they are alway higher than a comprable head with the same port volume. This means they will retain higher low end velocity with the smaller ports, and perform as well up top. Of course this is just what I have read, I have not yet actually owned a pair.

A set of Dart Pro 1s will do the job. Make sure you have hardened pushrods and guide plates.

Got any info on this. This is not what I have seen. I would be interested to see a site or an article.

I have read that the Trick Flows outflow most other heads out of the box. Hence the reason I may get them.

The pistons I have are 10.85 Compression.

Now would I be better off getting a pair of Iron heads or Aluminum ones?

Have read on a few threads here that I would make more power with iron heads. Aluminum is lighter but more prone to warpage. (VERY EASILY)

This engine is going in a 85 Ext Cab S15 Truck.

Looking to get LOTSA power but I dont want the power all up around 5000-7000RPM range. Would like it to be well evened out. Street/Strip is what is will be used for. Its not a daily driver and its not gonna be an all out dragster. More of a weekend street cruiser that I will take to the track alot during the summer.

I would go aluminum if it is primarily race and weekend use. Just be careful and watch the temp closely. They will allow you to run more compression without detonation on top of the weight savings.
