Iam unable to answer your question, but someone on the site advised to stay away from BBR. I dont remember the reason behind it. Maybe they will chime in.

This is what BBR has on there web site. I would stay away form them. Thats just me

Blow-By Racing BILLET 3V camshafts were design to maxize HP and increase acceleration.
With our stage 2 street/strip camshaft, BBR heads, BBR custom SCT tuning and basic bolt-ons we have seen an average of 375-385 rwhp.
**All tuning done with 93 octane pump gas and Dyno'd on a dyno jet.**

I would look at Livernois for a starter or talk to Larry_h.

I have heard to stay away from BBR cams, but I haven't heard anything about the heads. When I was researching heads, the only ones that looked good to me were Livernois, Fox Lake and FRPP. But since I'm still stock there, I can't tell you any actual results. Comp cams seem to be the most popular right now for our motors.

06 Stang GT, Yeah I got stuff! Check out my profile for the low down.

+1 on Comp Cams and Fox Lake was the other one I was trying to thinking of.

I wouldn't touch BBR with a 39 & 1/2 foot pole. Their cams are suspect. I'd stick with Comp, Crane, or Crower cams and either the FRPP or Livernois heads.

Ok... I stand by my original assessment. Avoid BBR for everything.

It's not necessarily the heads... it's their entire business practice.
