If I was going to spend $2000+ on a set of aluminum Cleveland heads, they would be CHI or AFD, not Trick Flow.

I have a set of AFD heads on my Cleveland and love them. Very good quality.

CHI & AFD were the innovators of aluminum Cleveland heads, and are used by most, if not all, of the Cleveland builders in the US. Trick Flow, since being bought by Summit Racing/ Atech, tends to be a follower of trends at a comfy price point. 

I'm not saying the TF heads are good or bad,  but if I was going to spend my money on a set of heads, I'd rather support the company that actually did the R&D work, not the guy looking over their shoulder.

Cool.  Reason I was looking at them was that they had various chamber and port volumes.

good to know I might look deeper.

Tmeyer built my 393 with trick flo heads nice parts but they are an entry level head. They are good but not the best.

Just adding this to your research library: I'm running TFS heads on my 408 stroked Cleveland:

Trick Flow PowerPort 190 Aluminum Heads- 195cc intake port/112cc exhaust port (TFS-5161B620-C00), combustion chamber volume- 62cc- profiled. Surface & port match heads to intake. (Edelbrock Air Gap) Ductile iron exhaust valve seats, Manley valves (Intake- #11324-8, Exhaust #11555-8) & spring cups (#42402-16), Comp Cams springs (#930-16), retainers (#741-16)& locks (#611-16), head studs (ARP-154-4004), Blue Thunder valve covers (#VC-SB-C)

572.2 HP/599.7 TQ, a little over 6,000 street miles and running strong. It is a beast. The TFS heads are quality pieces but then again I don't tend to follow the herd.

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic! thumb
