  1. Vortec head spark plug orientation

    Engine
    Today HP Tv aired a suggestion that indexing spark plugs in Vortec heads can promote a better burn. They showed an orientation favoring the open side of the spark pointing toward the exhaust valve. I am sure their suggestion is true but wonder if it's worth the fuss.
  2. FS: vortec heads, intake, valve covers

    Forum Classifieds
    In my never ending wishy-washiness, I've decided I'm not going to do the Vortec set up I was planning. Here's a link to my CL ad. As it says, I'll take $499 for everything. http://austin.craigslist.org/pts/2544862285.html Hoping to find a local TCer to sell to and would prefer not to ship...

  5. KMJ air gap intake for Vortec

    Engine
    I'm getting closer and closer to pulling the trigger on some Vortec heads, but trying to do as much homework as possible first, i.e., pricing everything. Anyone running this intake, or have any info on it? I'm considering it over Edlebrock intake in order to keep my costs down... Was looking...
  6. Price for new Vortec heads

    Engine
    I found some 906 vortecs for sale on CL for $400. They're proclaimed to be unused -- guess I'd have to try to confirm that somehow. Anyway, I see what they go for new on Summit/Jegs ($329 each), so $400 for a pair sounds like a deal. But I was reading an old post somewhere, and it said that...
