Question Heads on a 96 Tbird

What are the differences from the 1996 3.8 alluminum heads compared to a SC 3.8. Is it possable or worth it to put SC heads on my LX.

You can but you won't gain anything from them. Actually, I believe it was RGR that said the 96-97 heads flow a bit better than the earlier heads. The SC heads are a bit meatier to handle the boost.


It's not a 97 Sport, it just looks like one!

Mass. TCCoAers, Send me your info!

I buy all my Ford parts from 93 lx.

The 96+ heads have smaller stemmed valves for more air flow.
