I have a 1994 bone stock Mustang GT convertible. I pulled the motor to get more power. I bought Trick Flow 170cc (61) Heads with a Trick Flow Stage 1 cam and Comp Cams 1.6 ultra pro roller rockers will these components work without changing the pistons?

These heads do not require piston work if you are installing them on a stock engine. However, if you are planning to install these in conjunction with a serious lift cam, always check your piston to valve clearance.

In most cases you will not run into piston to valve issues with a stage 1 cam, we would still recommend to verify upon installation. This will be the same for the 5.0 and the 5.8.

These will work on that setup. The best cams would be either a E, B or a stage 1 TFS camshaft. Anytime you change heads and cam, it is always recommended to check valve to piston clearance.

Rene, Those heads can be used with the Ford Racing production head gaskets (M6051B51). These heads require stud mounted rocker arms such as TFS-51400510. You should be able to use stock length hardened pushrods but I would recommend checking the pushrod length before selecting pushrods.

Valve covers are not included, but any efi style cover that is intended to clear roller rockers will bolt onto these heads. Trickflows valve covers are a popular option. I would recommend a headstud/gasket kit, push rods, and roller rockers. with those components, this would be a bolt on kit.
