I would just like to ask what everyone thinks of bowtie heads on an emod and also bowtie heads compared to others, regular heads and aluminum. I have a set of bowties and was wondering if they will be sufficient. thanks

Are you asking about heads straight out of the box or modified? I have a set of bowties that are slightly ported and have been flowed against a set of ported brodix heads.The bowties flowed best.

Bowtie unported = glorified camel back. I am sure you can get great flow out of them by porting, but box stock some of the others are better.

I have great success with the Bowties. I also run WP Sportsmans heads with great success. The set of heads I cant seem to get to run are my Iron Eagles.........go figure. i think it depends on your whole combination more than anything.

I havn't heard much good said about Iron Eagle's. However the WP sportsman's seem to be good. If you already have these Bow-Tie heads, I say use em. They may not be as good as some other heads out there, but you can race em and save your money. Right now im using a set of Double Hump's with 2.02 1.60's. They've been angle milled to 52cc's. Using the stock diameter high lift springs. I went in there and ported the runners some. I know they are not as good as what my compitition has, but I have em so im gonna use em.

The only problem i have seen guys have with the ironeagles is that they buy them to big for what we are doing in the modifieds. buy the 200 or 180 cfm heads and they fly. the 215's will work with bigger motors but your best to leave the 230's to the drag racers. Just my experiance.
