Trick Flow 557
Who is the man to port some Blue Thunder Cylinder Heads?? Dennis I sent you a PM. Trying to get ahold of you. Hit me up.
+1 Especially when it comes to BLUE THUNDER heads. Their shop has a close relationship with Blue Thunder, and constantly are being sent 1/4 of chopped up aluminum heads to try out, port, and experiment with...I'd highly recommend my friend Geoff Mummert 619-596-0312. He eats,sleeps and breathes Ford's and Airflow. He is a young guy and has had a flow bench for years. He re-worked my A-460 FordMotorsport heads. He did the head's on 3 Engine Master's engines for Dan Crower. When Bruce Crower told me he was impressed with Geoff's work that was enough for me.
He'll do a good job for you, but be aware, he is a perfectionist but not expensive.
Also there are a few guy's on here (Performanceboats) that you may want to support. I just don't know them.
"What we discussed"? Is this some kind of "top secret" special priority/knowledge information?? Do you guys have a secret handshake?Didn't know you wanted to spend $$$$ on your Heads, but if you do, I'd send them to CFE(Carl Foltz), or Cary at ET Performance.
A lot of the shops mentioned by others,(above), do just that.
Remember, these Heads will flow what we discussed. No need to send them anywhere out of So Cal. There are some people around here that can port these to the numbers we talked about and get 1.7-1.8 hp per cubic inch out of the build.
Just my opinion, since I was asked to contact you. Good luck with whomever you select, and see you at the River.
Like I said in my above post, You;re right...those heads aren't going to suport that kind of HP in that big of an engine, but in something under 500ci, thay can. The ex port on those heads is still the weak point, no matter who ports them.1.7-1.8hp per cubic inch on BT heads????? Those are good numbers for nicely ported A460 heads. Thats 925.2 hp on a 514ci. @1.8 and a little over a 1002 hp on a 557!bulb I'd hate to know how much money you would have to spend on a set of BT heads to make that much power. I would think that 1.5 hp per cubic inch would be alot more realistic goal. Thats still 771hp on a 514, in the real world thats alot of power from a standard port head. Good luck.
