We recommend breaking this crate engine in properly. Latemodelrestoration.com will not be held accountable for any damages that may occur due to improper break-in methods. Normal break in conditions consist of 500 miles at normal operating conditions.
Aaron, You can use the Trick Flow Twisted Wedge Heads with this Ford Racing Short Block but a better choice for an engine of this displacement would be the AFR 185's. With this many cubic inches you need a cylinder head with more flowing capacity than that of the Twisted Wedge. As far as camshaft selection, I would need to know more about your intended use of the car, tire size, gear ratio, transmission, etc...to make a good recommendation on that. In any case I would highly recommend the piston to valve clearance be checked when assembling the heads, cam etc..as this short block has much closer tolerances with regard to the deck height and piston to valve clearance than a production 5.0.

Earl, Ford Racing does not put a particular horsepower number on their blocks as a rating but you can expect this block to support well over 1000hp.
