Nothing wrong with the heads that come on them, if you rebuild it I wouldn't go to the extra expense of new heads

Just to correct a few things stated in this thread.

Orion is still getting BOSS motors. BOSS290 production HASN'T stopped - they're going into FG XR8s.

Why would Ford/FPV warrant a dealer fit mod. Dealer should warrant it. That's why Ford dealers don't offer any aftermarket gear anymore - they won't warrant it, and neither will Ford.

Well first of all B-series Falcons are all speed density so no need for a MAF. As for having such a large t-body, it has been proven time and time again that just sticking an enormous t-body on an engine without consideration to it's operating range is a flawed approach.
I'd certainly like to see dyno graphs showing the area under the curve produced by this t-body compared to stock and even slightly larger versions.
