I am really considering purchasing the Ford racing head over the winter, but one day i would like to go turbo or superchager (presion or vortec). Is this a good idea or should i scrap that and just get the turbo or superchager. But if a new head is reconmended what cams would be good?

Get the head no matter what you decide.

As for cams, can't say. I'm planning this myself.

don't go too aggressive with cams, but FR stage 1...maybe FR stage 2 int, stage 1 exh ought to be fine for the future. You just want to keep overlap as low as possible.

Re: Along way from now but would?

What would be the best place to get these parts
FR head
FR stage 2 intake cam
FR stage 1 exhaust cam

After purchasing those what would be the best connecting rods and pistons to get

What other then parts listed above would be good to purchase

Thanks
James

If your going forced induction you need to hold off on the pistons and stuff until you get the power adder because you want to go with low compression pistons and if you had to drive it for awhile with no power adder it would be irritating

hmmm, i would definitely think about porting my head (basic line of sight and combustion chamber work) to take better advantage of that intake flow
