TRICK FLOW 240 VS EDDY RPM
« on: April 18, 2017 - 06:49:20 PM »
EDDY RPM FLOW: 291 IN 217 EXH
TRICK FLOW 240: 325 IN 257 EXH


Has anyone went from rpm to TF? What were the results?

The TF have pretty amazing flow numbers, for the money!
72 Cuda, owned 25 years. 496, with ported Stage VI heads, .625 in solid roller, 254/258 at .050, 3500 stall, 3.91 rear. 850 Holley DP, Reverse manual valve body.
Up to 4000 RPM, Warp Speed, Up to 5000, Rediculous Speed, Up to 6000 RPM, Ludicrous Speed!

1999 Trans Am, LS1, heads, cam, headers, stall, etc! Love to surprise the rice rockets with this one. They seem so confident, then it's "what the heck just happened?"

FYI there is a Trickflow Powerport 270 as well now.  CNC'd Max Wedge intake ports! :woohoo:

will I need special offset rockers etc for the 270's?

I am running rpm's and think there's a lot of room to move up in hp/tq

I am currently running an engine I bought off of a MOPARTS member and don';t have all specs.

This is what I know:
-512 440source 5060                                     http://www.440source.com/pistonmastertable.htm
-rpm heads
-440source 1.6 aluminum roller tip rockers 200-1046,.650 rocker spacers
-ch-28 dual quad eddy 600's
-hughes heh3237bl cam                               http://www.hughesengines.com/TechArticles/hehseriescamprofilesbigblock.php
-2800 stall,8-3/4 3:55


I feel like there's much more potential here and am considering: trick flows,single carb/intake,bigger cam,or possibly port/polish my rpm's


 I'm looking for a budget hp/tq upgrade,feel free to comment. thanks Wayne

Looking at the pic of the top of casting, i would say no. The intake port casting has already been redesigned to eliminate the "dogleg" inside the port.

The build looks good, I think the Trickflow heads would be an improvement. Plenty of cam for the street IMO. I would get rid of the dual plane/dual quad and go with a single plane manifold and a Holley Ultra XP carb or similar. Maybe upgrade the rocker arms.

 The rocker arms worry me for sure.I'm not sure if porting these rpms will get the same flow numbers etc. I like the look of the ch-28 but hate eddy carbs! I think the intake/carbs are robbing me of 50 hp and are sh!tty to tune.Right now with my air cleaner "the lowest I could find locally" only allows me a 3/8" spacer or it will hit the hood. I wonder what a good selling price would be for the intake/carbs/linkage/fuel inlet line/rockers.air cleaner and heads?Maybe 5000 miles on them.

Porting the Eddys may work but the cost is high. Also they don't have superior (IMO) CNC heart shaped combustion chambers. The CH-28 does look good but doesn't do much for h.p. improvement IMO. A correct single plane intake with a 950 cfm Holley type carburetor would work much better. I sell good used parts for 1/2 of the price as new. Seems to work, everybody is happy! Good luck!!
