Heads Work Question

Found a little coolant in the oil, yay! So I was wondering where you guys take your heads for refinishing? What else should I have done while those are out?

Thanks!

you can get some '03 Cobra/Mach 1/Lincoln Aviator heads for better flow.

Be very careful with any refinishing you have done on these heads... they require an extremely smooth finish... and if they are heat twisted they should only be used if it is very minimal.

A set of 03/04 Cobra/Mach1/Marauder or 03/05 Aviator heads are all the same... and they are the best flowing head short of the Ford GT/ Y2K-R heads... which wont fit our block/intakes anyway.

They are available LOADED(cams, valves ,springs etc..) from Tousley Ford for 10 over cost...

And if you get them new...they will be the new improved cooling "tick fix" heads!!!(used on late 05 Aviators)
(This is where I got my Whipple)

then you just need a 99/01 Cobra intake, or a Mach1 intake and you are in business...

But ultimately... don't buy anything until the forensics team is done!!!
