    Alright so I eventually plan on going F/I but untill then I would like to have some fun before then while I'm still N/A. I was looking into some trick flow twisted heads. I'v seen some good things about them but does anyone have any experience with them? alslo would they be worth anything once I go F/I or just basically another cylinder head? Or if anyone has any other cylinder heads that will make my stay as N/A a little more fun? Or would a port benefit me more than getting any new heads?

    probably about 2k ish and basically as much power as I can staying n/a with stock internals. so 350ish to the rear wheels while staying on the side of caution seeing as its my DD. Or just basically more power haha I know I should probably have a goal but for this right now i do not I just want to stay well below 400 (I dont think that will be too much of a problem haha)

    Got the 170s and a stage 1 cam from them on my 94 gt and love them. Just about to go FI myself but the heads were a good upgrade getting ready for it.

    I saw that but also saw that this topic was just in general tech so I thought he was just trying to get opinions on trick flow. That was why I was sure to say I was running it in my 94 so he would know that I am running it on a pushrod rather then his modular.

    Depends if you want to spend the moolah. 90% of guys can reach their goals with worked PI heads. No questions asked though there is more power to be had with TF heads, they also run offset retainers so you can run some monster cams if you ever desired.

    You can always get the TFS heads and throw a thicker gasket under them when you throw a blower in it to lower the compression ratio.
