He will be very satisfied with the AFR's, they are a GREAT head.

That is a very sound setup he should be making at least 330rwhp with that setup if not more. The trickflow intake is great and the only intake that is affordable that will handle the flow of the afr heads. I know alot of people say the Edelbrock performers are great and all but they only flow 200cfm and that is not enought to hanle much of anything except gt40's.

That would be alot. We would really need to know the rest of the cars set up to get am idea of the RWHP. 330 RWHP with what is listed will not happen.

Im gonna disagree with that....The Systemax outflows the TFS-R. and is affordabe. Also the SYstemax looks better than the TF (IMO)

correct me if I'm wrong but TFS makes 3 intakes... a street, track heat, and a R.

I dont think an R intake on a street driven 302 would be ideal. Just because it flows more doesnt mean it makes the same velocity and torque.

Subscribing, looking at the same set up except I will stay with the stock Cobra Intake.

AFR's are great on our cars. I like mine, now I just need to learn how to drive it...

I'm looking to do some of the same stuff in the next couple months, can anyone tell me the difference between AFR's 165 & 185 heads? And what about Competition Cams?

thanks for correction Dave. wouldn't most people though prefer AFR 165s with an intake producing more torque? I cant imagine the track heat intake sacrificing that much hp.

Thanks Dave, would you have the same opinion if it was stroked to a 331?

What number for the comp cam would you recommend for a car that is a daily driver? I'm really not interested in drag racing, really more into twisties and freeway onramps.

Thanks
