    He sure did, but I wouldn't have released it with my name all over it until it was proven at the flywheel.
    It looked bad and performed the same.
    If the velocity is poor... you are fkd.
    I've rolled around in my mind "bandaid cams" that might work better , old .557 296 110 slower to keep seat velocity in charge longer.
    Then I say ...what did those blooper heads flow again and what lift? Were they slow movers? Or just shit mixers with "fuel separation" wet flow would look interesting... I'll look again after post and edit, but if that' the case...cam won't much

    I never had the Bloomers flowed, just the Hughes Eddy`s. After they made 40 HP less, I just didn't see a reason to flow them. If I remember, Rod Bloomer jumped in pretty quick to give me a refund. He seemed like a really good dude. I felt pretty bad about that whole deal but for 2200 bucks.......They had to go.

    The port I THINK was designed by Miller but there was 1 other guy involved too. Can't for the life of me remember who. I'm going to see if I can find the old ad they had on Moparts.

    Just checked. The ad is still up. It says port design by Brett Miller and all CNC work and valve job by Tony Bischoff of BES Racing. FYI.

    Same here. Lots of quality farting around my garage doing nothing important. Spring seems farther away than ever. I think it's age.....

    Won’t argue the age/ impatient prospect of it all. That’s for sure!

    Thank god i did not go with BLoomer heads ... was so close to buying them.....
    You would think that Brett Miller would of worked his majic to make them work ????
    If i was staying with small block i would consider the new Smallblock Trickflows ???

      I would love to have a set too and may someday but the over 3000.00 cost, plus rockers, plus pistons, plus pushrods puts them out of reach right now for the performance gain.

      @pittsburghracer: these trickflows should be a stock replacement.....i´m also interested in these. I think you are talking about the EDE Victors?

        Did Trick Flow release the small block head for sale yet?

        Edelbrock Victors are a bit much $$$ wise. However by the time you get your “Other heads” to flow 300 cfm it will balance the cost out a little better.

        Brodix still makes all 3 versions of the small block Chrysler head.

        A “spec” head
        B1-BA
        B1-BA-MC

        The B1-BA is much like the Edelbrock head.

        The MC (moved centerline) has the most potential but require some thought before useage. There not a OOTB into the block head.

        Brodix has porting services. Check there web site for there listed flow numbers.
        From what I remember, that head is about equal-ish,
        (take that for what it is worth, you decide, but about equal)
        to a well ported W5.

        They are a bit more work than W5’s.
        But a W5’s can be hit or miss because of the potential crappy casting at the foundry.
        (I think they screwed Chrysler myself.)

        Visit there web site.

          Man when I saw "smallblock Trcikflows" I almost peed a little. Thought something snuck by me for a second or 2.

            Well, here's the final update. Just got home and the engine is still warn. So as you can guess, I am finally happy. Not a TON of difference from the Hughes Eddy's, but that thing did not sound right and had terrible throttle response.

            Great power, good torque and I'm telling ya....that thing is really "snappy",,, I guess the word is. Great throttle response and a real nice 1200 RPM idle.

            The only changes from the beginning are new Eddy's hand ported by my guy and a Victor 340 instead of the Super Victor. This is the last pull we made. Tried a race gas/pump gas mix, but on straight pump 93 it looked pretty much the same. (3 HP less) I think it's going to be a real fun street motor in my 3100 pound Demon 4 speed with 4:10's yeah!.jpg

                  there was no dyno sheet posted for the bloomers?
