Big guns have arrived! - Redux

Well, after many hours of worrying about Fedex's delivering abilities, I finally recieved 02Redhawk's old AFR 205cc heads. They are mine , Mike!

Anyways, I will begin the swap later tonight with picture updates as I go. After all the pieces have been swapped , it will be dyno tuned. Numbers and graph to follow. Wish me luck as I begin the parts swap.

First question though (Mike or Chris lol), does the A/C plumbing on the passenger side need removed to do the head swap? The helms manual states no such process, but it looks to be very messy about the passenger side header.

Thanks

I think they could, but most of the bolt ons for LS2s are focused on more TQ and HP higher up..since our TBs are well heavy, we need a BIIIG improvement of TQ in the lower regions... if they bought the mainstream heads being sold on LS2 cars, the I6 might even be able to pass the SS for the first 25 meters till the heads do their magic (wishful thinking but hey, take ur SS's offroad! )
