Does anyone have an idea how much is the hp difference between the b heads and intake vs the c heads and intake is. What's the most hp seen by each setup by you guys?

peak horsepower is prob like 20 hp or so, but its under the curve where the C heads shine so much more. They give you much more in the mid-range than a b-head will.

Yeah, theres a very good write up on here, comparing B heads, 99-01 Tumbleport C heads, 03-04 C Heads, FR500 Heads, and 2000 Cobra R heads. Its very interesting, might find something you never would have guessed.

The hp output of a C headed combo is far greater from idle to 6200rpm. The tq made by the C headed car is also far greater and allwos the use of less gear which saves the engine and maintains driveability.

this is all you need to see:
