That's why I asked.  They seem to make considerably more power than the TW of old.

While I'm sure that the new heads are an improvement, I don't know about the way more power thing.

People are getting better at making power, no doubt about it. But people are also making more power with older stuff too.

Many Renegade and Drag Radial cars ran mid/low 8s with the old heads, several years ago. Hell, a member here ran mid 9s N/A with a factory block and crank 306 with a set, and low 9s with a aftermarket block stroker before a engine failure took it out. There is a member on several other forms that ran high 9s with a set of unported 170s on a 408, N/A.

As far as I  know, the old school Renegade TW heads are still the badest stock intake/exhaust port location heads out there. There may be something out there now that is actually better, but those are some tough shoes to fill.

Plus, people are running the 11r 185 head where they used to run the as cast TW 170.

I have a set of those old Renegade TW heads.  They are really getting on my nerve to do a small inch high compression, high rpm, E85 build with them.

Canfield 192's 195's ??
 Wonder, Ponder

Stay away from the 192.  They are prone to cracking.  The 195 does not suffer the same problem and was a very good cylinder head for the money.  I've been told they are a little better out of the box than the 192 High Port.  But, the High Port can be opened up more than the Canfield.  I haven't seen much over 330 cfm on the intake port after porting on a Canfield because it gets too thin to take them further.  I've been happy with the set I have.

Would the springs need to be changed as well
Assuming that there is a pretty big spring in there for that solid roller

Honestly, it depends.

There are miles of differences in solid roller cams, as well as the springs used with them.

For example, the springs that come on most solid roller prepped heads are probably more than you would want to use with a Comp XE or Magnum street roller but too mild for an extremely aggressive drag race roller cam.

About equal to a unported TFS High Port, especially considering that they are basically copies of the HP heads.

Juice any fitting bought new was black. Most of the stuff was scavenged off old projects or what was available at the time or bought used.

If you guys are happy with it, I'm happy for you.

I'm just ocd about stuff like that, which is probably why I stick with the red/blue. I think that the black looks great but I know that I'm more likely to find what I need in red/blue.

All push lock was Fragola products. 8an / 10an easy.  6an not so much.

Thats weird.

As I said, the only pushloc that I've ever used was Aeroquip. It was all -6 and was very easy to use. I still have it on my trans cooler lines.

Another picture. Getting rid of frt fuel cell and pump cleaned up engine compartment.

I see that you still have the small distributor cap. You haven't had any phasing issues with the timing retards?

I know the boxes that you use only retards 10. My timing computer has 20 start and up to 20 step retards, and I'd be leary of using those with a small cap.
