    I finally got some time to get more done on my 468 this past weekend, the new peanut port engine is coming along too slow so I thought might as well get this done are race it. I have $1913 so far in this engine so I am happy about that. Here are some pictures.

    They are 934 Gen VI heads, same as the 990's. You can use them on a mark IV block with a Felpro 502 head gasket so I bowl ported them, cleaned up the exhaust and I will give them a try. I will use the factory 163 intake first with my 850 mighty demon the switch to this intake.

    That thing is a POS and those valve covers look like something off a Ford vehicle.
    I can't believe as smart as you seem to be you are going to run huge rectangular port heads.





    Give me your address and I will come dispose of that headache you have.
    :)
    Really though I can't wait to see what it runs.
    What cam did you stick in it???
    Did you calculate compression?

    Jeff play fair. If he needs someone to take it away I'll do it for free. You'd probably charge him. I've got a clean dry place to store it too. (Under my hood) LOL

    I think someone is having a bad day, LOL.
    The reason behind the heads is to do a test, I do know from data we have that a Sq. Port head like this was worth 13mph in 1/4, so the test is to see if we can get the ET to go with it. Besides for having $300 into them they were too nice to just sit on a shelf. What's wrong with the valve covers, everyone knows it's a 460 ferd motor.
