Dropped off the block at the machine shop. The owner is not sure what happened. He says he can sleeve that cylinder to fix it and there will be no durability issues.

Thinking about some options for this build. He is making good money and progress buying parts. The full gasket set, APR head studs, APR mains studs, APR crank bolt, and ATI balancer are already on the way. He's about to order another $600 in parts from LMR, which are a lot of the little things (EGR valve, IAC valve, PCV valve, water pump, motor mounts, transmission mount, etc).

However, he's itching to get the car on the road, and I don't blame him. So, thinking about the possibilities, this is what I've come up with:

Buy a set of TFS heads now, but put in some stock PI cams. The "assembled" heads do not come with cams, lash adjusters, or cam followers. I can get a set of new take-off PI cams for $70. Along with stock Ford lash adjusters and cam followers, that is a $360 cost. The heads will be ~$2300.

I called Trick Flow and spoke to one of their techs. He was fairly sure (though not completely sure) that we would be able to run the stock tune, with stock 21lb injectors and MAF sensor so long as we use the stock PI cams. That avoids a LOT of costs for now. 30lb injectors were going to cost him $300. A larger MAF was $400-$500. I live near Anderson Ford Motorsport and called them for a price on a dyno tune. Cost for a tuner and dyno session was estimated at $800 - $1000K.

He can drive it like this for the winter, and then next spring, when he has the money, he can order new injectors, MAF, and cams. We can get that installed in a day and then he can get it tuned.

Of course, we have already planned on BBK ceramic long tubes and the matching catted H-pipe.

The question is now, where do I buy the heads from. Fox Lake, Modular Head Shop, Modular Motorsport Racing....
