Re: TA Aluminum Intake OR ALuminum Heads(this is for real)
Not to discourage your efforts, but I have a question. If you are going to make an aluminum version of a stock head and I already have ported iron heads why would I spend $XXXX dollars PLUS more for porting to make the same power? Sure I will save about 40 pounds and can up my compression maybe 1/2 point and still use pump gas. To me it's not worth the cost.
Nobody is likely to buy an aluminum head for performance and then bolt on iron exhaust manifolds. If someone is going to shell out bucks for the heads they will surely spring for the headers. The head would not be legal for stock NHRA classes or pure stock racing so lets have a high performance head.
I say go for the stage 2 type exhaust right from the start. We can buy or make a header to match. Cast in extra material so we can raise the intake ports if we want. Also spread the valve centers so we can have larger valves.
