(This might get edited a few times)

Over the past 6 years or so,  my good friend,Geoff Mummert, and I have discussed replacing my set of 35 year old A460 heads that have been on the 1,000 hp 565.  This past year, 2023 we finally got the project started with a set of bare 340cc TFS heads ordered from Summit.

The As-Cast 340cc port ended up at 375cc - The port flows 480-ish cfm at .900" through a 2.385" valve. Port speed is approx 310 fps.
As cast Chamber:  83cc

Finished chamber: decked to 76cc

Preliminary upper  flow numbers: ( final flow depending on valve job)

The exhaust flow 340 @ .750 and 366 @ .900" with a 1.88" valve.

Some of what it took to get there:

molding the old A460 port vs the new TFS Port:

The engine is going back together at 12.75:1 (target compression) it will be no lower than 12.5:1. It should be a bit stronger than the rebuild from 2021 that made 1,002 at 7,600 and 771 lbs ft at 6,000.  (those heads flowed about 450 cfm with a 2.4" valve. The air speed was approx 270 fps)   This should be a bit stronger.  Hopefully we'll be on the dyno April

project engine: Boat engine - Target peak power 7,200-7400

Is this the same Mummert that did a crazy set of iron 302 heads a few years ago?

Are You Sticking with the Same Camshaft?

Those Heads look Great by the Way. Hope you pickup a little HP.

Same Mummert. Those 289 EMC heads he gives credit to someone else for their program. I'm pulling a blank

the cam is getting a bit of a bump, but we are considering doing an A/B test two days on the dyno. I think it would be beneficial to do so.

If you see him ask him how much they are getting to run a set of heads that that program.

Damn those Intake and Exhaust ports look so nice it's to bad you have to bolt and Intake and Exhaust on to them!!But i guess if you don't you can't get any Horsepower Numbers from those great Flow Numbers!!
