Your Performance Answer .

Trick Flow GenX ® 185 cylinder heads for naturally aspirated GM LT1 can produce the big power numbers you crave . The reduced 21 ° valve angles increase piston-to-valve clearance , unshrouding the combustion chambers and boosting airfl ow . Power-building Fast As Cast ® runners deliver CNC-style fl ow without the high cost of actual CNC-porting — saving you money that can be used to buy even more go-fast parts ! Then there ’ s the GenX ® 185 ’ s other standard features : A356-T61 aluminum castings , 2.020 "/ 1.600 " stainless valves , PAC Racing Pacaloy™ valve springs , ductile iron valve seats , bronze alloy valve guides , and the ability to reuse all stock sensors and fittings .

Your Recipe for GM LT1 Performance !

New heads are just one component of the horsepower recipe . To make it complete , you ’ re going to need some more ingredients .
GenX Top-End Engine Kit
Get up to 430 horsepower and 400 lbs . -ft . of torque from your GM LT1 with Trick Flow ’ s GenX Top-End Engine Kit . Carefully tuned by Trick Flow engineers , the kit includes GenX 185 heads , Track Max ® hydraulic roller camshaft , pushrod length checker , roller rocker arms , head bolts , and a gasket set .
Track Max ® Camshaft
If the complete top-end kit isn ’ t for you , consider the Track Max camshaft to go along with your new GenX 185 heads . With 220 °/ 227 ° duration at . 050 " and . 530 "/. 530 " of valve lift , it ’ s dyno proven to provide a broad torque curve and significant power increases in the 1,800-5,800 RPM range .
TFX™ Cold Air Intake Kits and Air Inlet Elbows
If you ’ re serious about wringing maximum power from your LT1 , you must eliminate intake restrictions . TFX Cold Air Intakes swap the stock airbox with a free-flow unit that dramatically increases airflow . The high-fl ow aluminum Air Inlet Elbow further increases airfl ow while adding some much-needed dress-up under the hood .
