My GT is currently undergoing major cosmetic changes and drivetrain changes. I am looking at minimum of three months before she sees the road again:so...but this time is allowing me to get my suspension setup, get her painted and what I thought was going to be a motor refresher is looking to be a motor swap.
I found a 306 with 1500 miles on it. Has a TFS stage 1 cam, aluminum pistons, oem crank and rods. Guy wants 500 for it. I was planning on having my stock heads rebuilt for my motor until I cam across this. My question is if I get my heads ported/polished and port matched to my TFS intake would I be hindering the potential of the motor that severely? I will eventually upgrade to AFR/ TFS heads in the future. I am looking to keep the car reliable and somewhat on the more gas friendly side since it will be daily driver for a while so I dont want to go all out right now, but I dont want to kill the full potential of the motor too much. Just curious if it would be worth it to have all that done or just buy some better heads, or if it would almost be close in price by the time i had all that done.

Thanks,
Andrew

So Reggie you are saying that these new E street heads are somewhat comparable to the AFR?

UPDATE::: I picked up my 306 block a few days ago. I am going to install new piston rings, rod bearings etc and have everything cleaned and checked out( mainly due to the fact that the motor had no heads so since it had been opened I want to cover my butt). everything looks to be in really good shape though. Now I just need to find a set a heads since it will be sitting s little bit longer this gives me more time to search. The mustang will not be my daily driver now ( as I have purchased a 1999 escort---30mpg i figured why not). I have found a set of procomp aluminum heads with trick flow valve springs, 2.02/160. Anyone had any experience with theses heads or are they a cheap knockoff that would be better to avoid?
