Not the Jeg's/Kaase heads, but the regular Jeg's aluminums. Has anyone heard anything about them? My buddy is looking into them and wants to be a little different, and he wants to be the guinea pig for us Mustang dudes. What say you? :cool:

I think they are made by Canfield, so are good heads.

I have no firsthand knowledge, and they are not popular in this little corner of the USA, but I think they'd be very good heads. I've seen the larger Canfields (197's) , and they had some unique features. Canfield doesn't advertise much, but I think they have some excellent engineering behind them. The Ford "Z" heads look very much like Canfield's to me.

They flow very close to the AFR 165's. Made almost as much power on the engine dyno in a MMFF test. You wouldnt notice the difference on the street.

I think you are referring to the Jeg's/Kasse heads, no? If not, then awesome!

I say why be a guinea pig when there are so many proven heads out there. I would still like to see some results however.... Good luck!!!

If my AFR's get damaged in shipping, I'll be the guinea pig for the Jegs/Kaase heads.:evil: Everyone keeps talking about them and no one has used them. I'm almost hoping that my heads fall off the truck! If everyone does the same thing, then no one will know if there is a better way. This board pushes the AFR/FTI cam combo to death. I am determined to make the most of my XE282HR. If I go custom, it will be from Comp cams. I don't care how much someone thinks they "know" the sbf, the major cam manufactures have decades worth of R&D and the best equipment to determine what is right for you. That's just my opinion though.

Be different. If you're wrong, at least you weren't afraid to try.

Do you guys think the Jegs/Kasse heads would be too much for a 357 cu in windsor? I mean 240+ cc intake runner! MM&FF tested those heads on a Dart based stroker. I am wondering if the $1600+ for heads and Valve covers, I could get a set of heads that better suit my combo.

those #'s look good....try 'em hardcore!

White93pony, a 240cc head is too big for a 357......Unless it is an svo block and you are turning it to 8-9K....

depending on what you want to do, the regular jegs head would be nice on a street/strip 357....

awesome. I have something like that, theyre called avenger heads, i didn't put them on but found out that they are or were made by canfield. They have very similar numbers and i am very satisfied with them.
