Got some C5OE '65 Shelby heads here I'm gonna do some grinding on - aim is 450hp on a stealth 347 that looks like the original Shelby engine (it's a real deal GT500 mustang, original matching numbers engine is going into a safe corner & a 'period correct' 347 going in to wake it up a bit).

Very nice, that should make for a nicer drive mate!
I like a good stealth build

In his shop DV had the 66 289's on the grinding bench when I got there. He was doing some interesting chamber mods. The other sets of heads for the shootout that I saw are finished and loaded with valves and springs. He didn't have a firm date for dyno days. Thanks, Charlie

Dyno still going forward, I asked David last week. I was hoping to be able to go to his next seminar and then drive to the dyno on the same plane trip but no such luck with the dyno on same trip. Thanks, Charlie

The discussion with David ventured into cams for the 306 shortblock that will work these heads over. The shortblock will be 8000 rpm capable. I would love to get some input on cams for this cylinder head competition. I don't have all the build specs but maybe David will add some specs if there is interest. Thanks, Charlie

We did have a discussion but no date was set. DV has too many projects at the same time! One set of 289 heads was at the shop that I could see the valve job I used needed to be redone and DV modded the chamber with his " Late phase hyper scavenge" design. He is also doing expansion on his shop for a week long hands on porting seminar along with his usual schedule. He has more going on so the head shootout is on hold for now. Thanks, Charlie

So what you are saying, is he didn't think your work was good enough. As he had to modify it.. lol

Thanks for the results. ... sorry he used you guys.

Maybe I should send him my hypersuperduper flow emulsifying intake seat cutter to use.

Hmm, I don't know what the deal was on that one cylinder that has a sharp edge outside of my valve job but it will need to be fixed. As for his chamber mods I can't comment but he stated it would add hp.

With all disrespect, I think its bull$hit for him to tell you it will pick up power.. prove it. Test your heads first, pull them off and PROVE it. I THINK HE'S BAFFLING YOU WITH B$.

Sorry Carnut, but I think he used you.
