Default Experience with Canfield heads

Getting ready to buy some of there 170cc or 195cc heads & a custom cam for my stock 302. Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with any of these heads before. If so please list. Thanks!!!

no personal experience but i can tell you that from everything i have read/heard/saw they are excellent heads. for a streetable 302 with a stock bottom end and fuel injection i would recommend the 170cc heads, i believe the larger ones will be overkill.

nice to see someone NOT getting AFR's or Trick Flows, even though they are both excellent heads as well.

AFR & Trick Flow are good heads but want to try something different. Jay Allen at CI is getting me a H/C combo together & i'm very excited. I just want to see if anyone else was running any of these heads & hear there experiences.

Well I have the Typhoon intake but I'm thinking of finding a used System max or if I use the typhoon I will have it port matched to help a little more.

Only prob i hear with Canfields is thier exahsut ports are in
slightly higher position than normal. So you might have some
header or exhaust mid pipe alignment problems.
