I can't tell you specificially what changes were involved but they were made standard issue on most modular motors beginning 2000 or so. They should be readily avaiable amost anywhere Ford heads would be sold.

I had something written, but forgot to post it.

Besides combustion chamber size, intake and maybe exhaust port shapes were changed. This got better high-end without sacrificing low-end.

They were introduced for the V8's around the 1998-1999 time frame, and put on the V10s in model-year 2000.

I'm not entirely sure, but I don't think all Fords got the upgrade at the same time.

I was thinking even if Trick Flow made better flowing 2V V10 heads you will still be stuck with the stock intake manifold and not be able to see the full potential of the better flowing heads.(Unless you fab your own IM) If they can come up with a better intake manifold that makes more power in the mid to upper rpm range but does not hurt low end that much I think it would be a better seller. An intake manifold swap is easier (and cheaper) than a head swap and as said before the stock heads can be ported to flow pretty good.

I'd be interested but due to low miles(60K) on my V10 I doubt I'll have the need for them any time soon.
Great idea tho...

2v'ers

I knows its been a while since we habe been chatting aboit this, but is there a problem with the stock intake on the v10?
My prob with mine is, when i am towing the heavy loads, i have a hard time keeping the rpms up. Which in turn birns up the tranny. I have been considering a cheater nitrous kit for the one major pass that is a over zelous truck owners nightmare. (This pass is 15 miles at a 7% + grade) Especially late 90's to early 2000's gas or desiel Ford Sd's have lost either fluid or thier tranny all together. A towing nightmare. I have seen tractor-trailors on the side of the road with melted turbos.
I think the only pickups i have seen go over this pass with half a load on and lots of black smoke are the Dodges. That inline moster 6 cyl.
Well, if i can get my 3v swap done and add as big of a tranny cooler i can find and fan back it (i have added a 16' boat to the. Mix) and try that. If that dont work, then i guess i will be either trying the nitrouswith some sort of gradual boost, or calling up my engenieer friend and see if he cant design and build me a mount for a turbo. Just wish i had the ol 76 my father left me. Might be easyier to rip it all out and put a ford racing 429 backup to a 6 speed manual.. THAT WOULD BE FUN.

Please elaborate on the intake manifold, and its deficiancies.

Also, I'm for a set of meetier heads, simply so you don't have to worry bout the plugs coming out, like I stated earlier. Same power level is ok, slight increase is a bonus, if it allows for a more reliable setup. I know it's not a huge issue, or every engine, but my opinion would still be worth it.
