Well personally I would only go with a FocusSport cylinder head, with their cams. That way you know it's done right, and you know the gains you'll get will be the gains they say you will get.

The focusCentral head might be fine, but there is that huge question mark around customer service.

Not to mention, FocusSport has nice incentives for buying their cylinder head.

Lastly, I can attest that I'm sick and tired of being passed in my SVT by the likes of ZXMurph and AirforceFocus with their FocusSport cylinder heads. These guys are just stinkin fast

What he said. I've had to do so much extra work to get my FC head running right. I still haven't and I plan on taking my car up to Focus Sport to see if they can work some magic on it. I've seen Airforce's car up close and was very impressed by how it ran. FS knows what they are doing and do it right the first time.

Thanks for the info. I guess I'll get the FS head. Maybe then I'll be fast.

awful pricey though...unless you were gettin a bunch of stuff on the incentive list (now 20% off i think). i think for the money, esslinger and ford racing make great heads (6-800 bux versus 1500ish, plus you keep your stocker (if you need to go back)). these 2 heads get the same treatments (fresh head (FR) or hot tanked (Ess)...full inspection, new valvetrain guts, flow tested, chambers measured etc). no discredit to FS, not at all, but their head, like FC, is just a lil on the steep side considerin that other heads nearly half the price are making the same amount of power or more.
