Default Best top end kit

I was thinking of going with trick flow head kit. Comes with Cam heads intake and all hardware. What are some other options as far as kits go.

The general consensus is that you can build your own kit for similar money and make more power doing it.

I'm happy w/ my holley systemax kit. However, if you ever wanna go with a power adder ie blower, I would probably go with afr 185's w/ the holley intakes.

The Holley kit costs more than the Trick Flow kit and it comes with less stuff. My vote is for T/F... that's what I bought for my car.

I can't see Holley being any worse than the Trick Flow... Holley has been around for quite some time, you would think they know what they're doing

I didn't say they didn't know what they're doing... they just cost more and it comes with less parts.

Any idea on the results of both kits? I've heard most people with the TFR put down around 270 rwhp. I wonder the Holley kit usually puts down...

Go TrickFlow....they have everything that you need....Good Price....Great Quality!

Don't forget about the extras though....Bigger TB/MAF/Injectors/Fuel Pump.....

Whenever you upgrade one part of your motor...you cannot neglect the other parts
