new trickflow heads

Just installed the new twisted wedge heads on my 94 gt,( no new cam or intake for budget reasons). Car is running extremely lean, so much so that my tuner told me it would be dangerous to take it to the track this weekend. But besides that the car is putting 235hp to the wheels. Pretty excited about the results considering he told me ill also probably gain about 30 hp once we get it tuned and running right. My next question is....once i have the money should i continue on with cam and intake without all the bolt ons?(ie TB, MAFS, headers, injectors and fuel pump) or would it be more beneficial to get the bolt ons and THEN the cam/intake? Thanks for the help!

I say figure out your cam intake combo and then add the supporting mods later.

I would do the injectors and MAF so that you can at least enjoy what you have. Throwing more parts at it is only going to make your lean condition worse. No sense in adding more performance parts that you can't fully enjoy IMHO.

I say, do a track heat intake with injectors, bugger MAF and TB, and a tune.

You should be getting a lot more than 235rwhp with TFS heads. Which intake are you using (I presume you have the stock cam)?
Any time you upgrade the heads/intake, you'll find that the stock fuel pump and injectors are inadequate so you really need to upgrade those items either before the heads/intake or at the same time.

From what I understood from his post he is running stock intake and came with the TFS heads.

That would be like giving the engine bigger lungs and making it breathe through a straw.

You need injectors and a MAF or a tune before anything. Your tuner is right, if you're running those heads with 19lb injectors, you're asking for trouble. While you're at it a 255lph pump is almost just as mandatory. No you don't actually need one as large as a 255, but they cost nearly the same and you might as well leave room for improvement if you're buying upgraded parts.
