    Wow, those numbers SUCK! I was thinkin that the flow numbers on the Steen heads would be better than that, but seeing the stock numbers I'm now very happy! :banana:

    Steen could have hogged them out and made them flow 230cfm but that doesn't always = power. Jason has alot of knowledge and i guarantee those heads will work great, look at the improvement in the exhaust #'s...thats whats important when working the NPI heads.
    Your flow #'s are about equal to a stage 1 PI head but without the raised compression.

    That's exactly what I wanted. A nice street port, without having to bump my compression ratio. :pimp2:

    Well, turns out that Steen sent me the heads without rollers or lifters. The shop that's doing the work had to take the heads apart, and put all that stuff on from the heads they took out before they could install em. I'm gonna be on the horn first thing tomorrow morning with Jason to find out what the hell happened with that! :rant:

    Did you ask & pay for new lifters and followers? They usually don't come free with a set of P&P'd heads...you use the ones from your old heads.

    Yeah, they hit me with that this morning. Damnit, why do I always find these things out AFTER the parts are paid for? :nonono:

    haha you have to make a list of questions before you order so you don't forget to ask anything...but as far as i know nobody includes that.

    Look at 97BlownStanger, he put down @320-330rwhp with 10psi through the stock NPI intake/cams/heads...

    you will get atleast 30 from the intake and another 30 from the cams and probably atleast another 20 from the head work.

    Well my Steen racing NPI heads are now in, and those XE270AHs sound awesome! :banana: That Livernois PI kit went on pretty smoothly as well. Damn what a difference, I can't believe I waited this long to get that stock NPI crap outta there....... :nonono:

    Nope, cause the Procharger went on as well. I'm running the FMU it came with for now, but I'll be switching to VMP's 05 style maf kit and 42pounders in the next couple weeks. Then I'll get her tuned. Think I'll gain much HP afterwards?
