Hughes Engines Tech Center: Trick Flow Cylinder Head Handbook


Trick Flow has really come on strong in the Mopar market over the last couple of years with a wide range of aluminum big-block and small-block cylinder heads. In fact, browsing their Chrysler catalog nets no less than 35 products of varying intake runner volume and application. With so many options, it can be hard to select the right set, especially for big-blocks. To help, Hughes Engines put together a quick reference guide with notes on everything from valve springs to camshaft size:

Standard Port Heads:
TFS-61617801-C00: Valve Springs suitable for our Hydraulic Flat Tappet cams up to SEH3642BL. For larger cams, use TFS-61617802-C00, or upgrade to appropriate spring (HUG 1106).
TFS-61617802-C00: Valve Springs suitable for all of our Flat Tappet Hydraulic and Mechanical cams.
TFS-6161T783-C00: Valve Springs suitable for all of our Flat Tappet Hydraulic and Mechanical cams. (Titanium Retainers)
TFS-6161T784-C00: Valve Springs suitable for small to medium sized Roller Cams. (Titanium Retainers)

Raised Max Wedge Port Heads:
Currently, there are no bolt-on intake manifolds with ports that line up available for the Trick Flow Raised Port Max Wedge head. However, Hughes Engines makes a deep port matched Edelbrock intake fit very nicely. This intake has a 4500 carb base (HUG 2893-TFMW).


TFS-61617801-C01: Valve Springs suitable for our Hydraulic Flat Tappet cams up to SEH3642BL. For larger cams, use TFS-61617802-C00, or upgrade to appropriate spring (HUG 1106).
TFS-61617802-C01: Valve Springs suitable for all of our Flat Tappet Hydraulic and Mechanical cams.
TFS-6161T783-C01: Valve Springs suitable for all of our Flat Tappet Hydraulic and Mechanical cams. (Titanium Retainers)
TFS-6161T784-C01: Valve Springs suitable for small to medium sized Roller Cams. (Titanium Retainers)

That restoration experience lead to pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a career in manufacturing. Since then, the garage has expanded to include a '67 Satellite, a '72 Scamp, and a 2010 Mopar '10 Challenger.
