AFR head questions

Why are the AFR small block race ready heads less money than the competition cylinder heads? Both are assembled and the race head, which is less money flows more.

The only Mustang I'd ever own is a Fender.

Re: AFR head questions

I think it has to do with the CNC process on the AFR and competition has to use manual labor? But I am sure there is more to meet the eye on this. Maybe the street head is to the max to start with, without getting some additional porting and tweaking and more hours on the flow bench. I would guess that the next step up would be to match perfectly the cam, manifold , head and piston to each application and thats where Tony would come in to play.

Re: AFR head questions

Race Ready usually just means they are ready to get the trick stuff done to them, not that they actually have the extra CNC porting, polishing, competition valve job etc done to them.

My assembled Brodix heads were "race ready", but still needed porting, polishing and a good valve job done to them.
