Description
More Power. Increase the horsepower and torque output of your push rod 5.0L engine with the Ford Racing Turbo-Swirl GT40X Aluminum Head. These GT-40X heads feature a 64CC Combustion Chamber to greatly improve the airflow over the original GT-40 design allowing you to bolt on 65 more horsepower. Improved Air Flow. These Ford Racing GT-40X heads have an intake port volume of 178cc allowing for an intake flow of approximately 240 cfm at .550" lift (at 28" of H20) and an exhaust port volume of 62cc allowing for an exhaust flow of approximately 170 cfm at .500" lift (at 28" of H20). Machined for 1.94" Intake and 1.54" exhaust valve diameters.

Lightweight. Made from high quality original equipment style 356-T6 aluminum castings, each head weighs in at only 22 lbs. that is 25 lbs. lighter than the original cast iron GT-40 head, that is a weight savings of 50 lbs.

Fully Assembled. Leak tested prior to assembly, each Ford Racing Turbo-Swirl GT40X Aluminum Head comes fully assembled with M-6507-J302 intake valves, M-6505-G302 exhaust valves, and M-6513-A50 valve springs. As an added bonus the valve springs are compatible with all Ford Racing roller camshafts.

Installation Notes. Ford racing "X" heads are designed to use either GT-40 or aftermarket performance intake manifolds, M9439A50 intake gasket, and AGSF-32C spark plugs. Designed for bolt-down rocker arms part number M-6564-B351 for a 1.6 ratio or use part number M-6564-A50 for a 1.7 ratio.

Application. The Ford Racing Turbo-Swirl GT40X Aluminum Head is designed to be a direct bolt-on for the 1982-1985 and 1987-1995 5.0L Windsor-style V8 engines. It will

not fit 1986 5.0L with flat-top pistons unless pistons are notched for valve relief.

Technical Note. Be sure to check your intake manifold for port match, because not all intakes are compatible due to the tall high-flow ports.

  • It depends on their use. Typically a mid range street cam will compliment the heads nicely for dd with occasionally track use.As far as "full abilities", that is entirely dependant on your wallet. If I am understanding your second question correctly, 'turbo-swirl" does not refer to a turbo charger enhancing feature. It is a brand name performance reference drawing attention to the combustion chamber geometry, designed to swirl the air and create more turbulence to mix the air and fuel more efficiently. It is analogous to the term Ecoboost for Ford's turbocharging technology .

  • If you are talking about the plenum on the Cobra Replica Intake manifold the naswer is yes, but for Ford Racing parts if you call 800-FORD-788, they sat on the phone with me for like 40+ minutes and helped me piece together a new engine for my 1990 Mustang GT 5.0.

    more than expected!!!!

    April 26, 2013

    I was expecting some heads to arrive that were as heavy as the stock heads and that would perform a little better than stock. man was I wrong. these gt40x heads weigh half as much as stock and way out perform them. along with the ford racing e303 cam and shorty headers in saw a 115 rwhp gain on the dyno. the icing on the cake is that now my stang just sounds meaner than ever.

    Very nice setup

    May 08, 2014

    I read tons of reviews and forum discussions but it came down to price for me I bought one head new and the other new but open package on Ebay and for about $700 I have a set of aluminum heads that blow away the stock anchors. I havent had the car out for a full pass yet but sure does seem a lot more alive I do want to mention that the chambers needed some cleaning up any novice can do it I have porting experience and the tools but just gave them a quicky.

    Would I reccomend? Yes and No

    December 12, 2014

    Silky smooth install. Good quality parts. If you do not plan on porting these heads I would recomend going with the Edelbrocks that AM offers. Although they are a little more expensive they flow much better on paper. With that being said I think these heads flow excellent. I can hear the difference in air that my engine gets now. If I could go back in time I would order these heads again
