Notes

  • These Flo-tek aluminum heads are the answer to the performance enthusiast and work on the small block Fords including the later EFI series when used in conjunction with an aftermarket intake, carb, and camshaft. Aluminum heads allow for a higher compression ratio than cast heads without creating pre-ignition problems. Check your piston usage with the 58cc combustion chamber for accurate ratio computation.
  • If using the heads on a 289 or 302 the upper row is 80 pounds net and the lower is 70 pounds. Torqued in stock sequence and increments. If using on the 351 with the larger bolts it is 100 pounds net torque in same sequence and increments as stock.
  • The head uses 3/8 rocker studs and requires the use of adjustable rocker arms like our part number: 91511772. You will need to check your push rod length to determine the correct length before ordering them.
  • Depending on the how much extra lift you are going to go with, you may also need different valve spring retainers that allow for more valve spring installed height.
  • We recommend using part #1011543601 with this head, this is an ARP head bolt kit.
  • These Flo-Tek aluminum heads for the small block Ford are specified to take plug number AGSF-32C

Best

July 13, 2012
I used this set of heads with Crane 1.7 roller tip rockers on a stock 91 Mustang 5.0. The stock heads stoped pulling at 4000rpms where this head/rocker combo pulls to 5500rpms. I now run this setup on a Explorer 5.0 stock bottom end with 1.7 rockers. Gobs of torque and the engine still pulls to 5500 rpm with the stock cam. Unfortunately, the intake ports are not aligned perfectly. Port matching will do wonders for the true perfectionist. This has not caused leaks or lack of performance for my street vehicles. Best bang for you buck!!!
Pros:
  • Improves Engine Efficiency
  • Durable
  • Lightweight
  • Increases Power
Yes, I recommend this product.

The difference you see between the manufacture advertised flow numbers and the flow numbers from the magazine article is due to different flow benches being used. The same cylinder head will come up with different flow numbers when checking it on different flow benches. This is due to countless factors which are hard to compensate for.

The GT40P intake manifold size is the best fit for these cylinder heads. Other intake manifolds will bolt on but the intake port size is similar to the GT40P heads and performance will not be as good with standard SBF intake manifolds. Standard small block Ford headers will fit these heads.

Will these heads work with stock ford 289 pistons or will the bigger 58cc combustion chamber reduce compression too much over the original 54cc heads? Can the right cam compensate for the lower compression?

You will lose some compression but these heads are light years away from your stock heads the will make a lot more power and save a lot of weight and you could always have the heads milled no one makes a sbf head under 58 cc
January 23, 2015
EricM
These heads are not a great option for a stock 289 for just that reason. You will end up with a very low compression ratio.

Yes these heads will work with your 94-96 302 engine as well as the Eldelbrock intake and carburetor. You will also need roller rocker arms such as 57534543 to clear the valve springs and head bolts 1012543708 which have a step to allow the use of these heads on your 302 engine.

These heads are only offered in a 58 cc combustion chamber. The compression difference from 58 cc to 60 cc combustion chambers will be so small it would likely never be noticed.

No stock pushrods can not be used with these heads. You will need hardened pushrods for use with guide plates. Also you will need roller rocker arms such as 57534543 to clear the valve springs on these heads.

Yes these heads will work fine on your 1974 302 engine. They work best with the GT40 type intakes like you plan to use. The intake port size is similar to the GT40 heads.

ARP Fasteners 554-9501 Ford Small Block 289-302 Engine Fastener Kit
(Part #1015549501)
                        It’s easy to assemble a show-quality engine when you use ARP’s handy Engine & Accessory Fastener Kit. Virtually everything you need comes completely organized in one convenient package. More importantly, each and every fastener is superior in strength to the OEM bolts, and also significantly better than hardware grades (even Grade 8). 

Plus, these fasteners are made of a specially alloyed Stainless 300 material, which has the added benefit of being virtually impervious to rust and corrosion. The stainless steel is polished to achieve a brilliant luster, and provides a distinctive, maintenance-free environment. Each kit has a dozen different type fasteners, all neatly organized and labeled in protective vacuum-wrapped packages. 

  • 12 point heads
  • Polished stainless steel 300 material
  • 170,000 psi tensile strength

Fits 289-302 Ford Small Block V8s (1987 & newer EFI engines may require additional fasteners).

COMP Cams 35-600-4 Thumpr Cam, Ford 302-351W, 2000-5800 RPM
(Part #282356004)
                        

Have you ever been to the races and heard how nasty the cams sound? COMP Cams has developed the Thumpr series of cams that give you every day drivability but have that nasty race engine sound. Pick the cam that fits your application, add a set of COMP Cam hydraulic lifters and you will be the talk of the town. 

Thumpr Camshafts are a new series of retro-fit hydraulic roller and hydraulic flat tappet cams designed for use in a variety of small and big block V8s. The aggressive exhaust note of a Thumpr cam comes from a combination of early exhaust valve opening, long exhaust duration and a generous amount of intake and exhaust overlap - maximizing the rough-idling characteristics of the cams without negatively impacting power or streetability.

ARP 254-3708 Ford 302 w/ 351 Windsor Aluminum Cylinder Heads Bolt Kit
(Part #1012543708)
                        

ARP head bolts for after market Ford aluminum heads like the FloTech. These 1/2" - 7/16" stepped bolts feature a 12 point head and are intended to fit Small Block Ford 302 applications with 351 Windsor cylinder heads.

All Pro Series bolts are cold-forged to ensure molecular integrity, heat-treated prior to thread rolling and machining, and are rated nominally at 200,000 psi.  ARP Pro Series head bolt kits are application specific - designed for use with typically competition only components.  These fasteners deliver superior strength and meet the ARP "ZERO defect - ZERO failure" quality standard. Hardened and parallel-ground washers are included with each kit to ensure even load distribution and accurate torque readings.  All Pro Series head bolts have a reduced wrenching hex or 12-point head and wide area flange to eliminate the need for valve train removal for cylinder head retorquing and permits the use of larger diameter valve springs. Most applications have undercut short bolts that can help eliminate head gasket failures through providing more "stretch" to compensate for the additional compression of gaskets.

  • 12 point, Pro Series
  • 1/2"- 7/16" stepped bolt
  • Ford 302 with 351 Windsor heads
  • Full set of 20 bolts and washers
  • Comes complete with hardened parallel-ground washers
