Trick Flow Specialties debuted some great new parts at SEMA 2019, as it introduced several new sets of cylinder heads and intake manifolds. These new top-end parts will help your small-block Chevy, LSX, or big-block Mopar engine make even more horsepower with updated designs from Trick Flow.
Small-block Chevy cylinder heads are a staple for Trick Flow, and its new DHC cylinder head with competition-ported runners is the next evolution for this iconic engine platform. These heads are a new version of the 175cc as-cast heads that resembled the classic double-hump cylinder heads. Trick Flow’s new version of these heads measures 200cc in size, with a larger 2.05-inch intake valve. The heads flow 290cc at .700-inch lift and come fully assembled with ARP studs.
Keeping with the small-block Chevy theme, Trick Flow also introduced its new R-Series intake manifold. This intake features a high-rise single-plane design with a 3,500-7,500 rpm power range. The R-Series intake is a perfect match for Trick Flow’s 230cc CNC-ported heads and uses a 4500-style carburetor.
Eddie Pinegar from Trick Flow talks about the new LS3 heads that are set to be released for those who like to have modern-muscle power under the hood.
“We had an older version of these heads that was an all-around unit, but people started using it for power-adder applications, so we decided to revise it. This 280cc version of the head has CNC porting and is an HIP head, so it’s way stronger than your typical cast-cylinder head. It has a totally redesigned port work and upgraded valves, rather than our standard. So, this will work great for power-adder builds.”
Rounding out Trick Flow’s new offerings is something for the Mopar crowd — the R-Series intake manifold for big-block engines. This intake is set up to work with Trick Flow’s 270cc Mopar heads and use a 4500-flange carburetor. The Mopar R-Series intake is designed to have an optimal powerband between 3,500 and 7,500 rpm.
