    Got the A-460's back today. 8 new 2.40" Ti- intakes with new beryllium seats all cleaned up and ready to go:

    Looks good Jon. Did you just pull the heads or tear down the whole engine?

    Just the heads this year. Hopefully new pistons after March 2010. It will only have a few days on it at the end of the season. It will be nice and fresh for the Tom Papp 2010 memorial

    Looks like you were polishing your pistons with the exhuast valves. Is that the new hot tip. Hahaha.

    Did I mention I had the stout valve springs put back on

    720 lbs over the nose vs 640 lbs. Nothing hurt but the pistons were nicely brushed no carbon on the piston tops.

    Cool

    Nice detailing on the chambers, and realignment of the oil return....are those the early/1st Gen Motorsport A heads (right after Ford purchased TFS?)

    Yep, first Gen. My friend Geoff Mummert did a bunch of work on them the chambers were down to 66 CC. A bit less now because he just surfaced them. I don't know if you re-call my dyno sheet's but the heads are a very big part of the .331 BSFC at peak trq and an average of .366 BSFC over the pulls.
