I wish they had tested the Dart heads; but for ~$800 you can't beat the Flo-Tek's. Especially for the Crown Vic; shaving weight off the front is a nice bonus. If you don't have GT40P's already with new guides, a valve job, real springs and that have been cleaned and checked for cracks...you'll be surprised at what this will really cost. Especially if the valve seats have receded.

I've got a similar cam in my Mopar 360 (Comp XR258HR-12) and it makes good power for only being a 206 / 212. Fast lift rates help a lot, and with the short duration, it's beyond torquey. The motor pulls like a diesel that can rev. Pulls well from 900 rpm, starts to get stronger around 1200 and pulls like a freight train from 1500 on up. In my motor (with 1.7 rockers), it doesn't start to fall off much until around 5500.
