Question about TFS A460 and Motorsport A460 heads

Post  chadb on February 13th 2017, 12:48 am

I currently have a set of Ford Motorsport heads. I'm thinking of ordering the TFS A460 340 bare heads. I was curious if could I use the valves and springs off of the motorsport heads on the new TFS heads. I was told from a friend that the valves may not work for some reason, can anyone help with this topic?

Depends upon what TFS options you get with the castings. Some will interchange.

TFS-5441B001-M87

This is the part number of the TFS heads I would be getting.

You should be able to install the A460 Motorsport valves and springs into those heads; (although the Motorsport exhaust valves are a tulip design).

Depends on what you actually have in the Motorsport heads

Getting new heads simply to update my operation. Have been looking at getting new heads for a few years now. Decided to go with the assembled TFS heads and be done with it. Thanks for everyone's input.

Just a question as to the goals of changing the heads... raised ports, bigger valves I get it, but are the assembled heads going to give you the right matched components for the camshaft you want to maximize the combination and meet your expectations?
