4.6L PI Head Swap Kit


So I know that one of the most popular things to do to our NPI motors is to swap in some PI heads and/or intake. I was looking around and ran into this kit on the net: http://www.parkwayperformance.com/2vheadswap.asp

The price looks a little high (considering I think I've seen heads for sale for ~$400). But the kit is all new parts, and there is a lot of other stuff in the kit.

Has anyone used this company, and is this a good deal?

Yeah I've heard of these people. They are legit'. I've also seen them in a couple of mustang magazines. I pieced my own kit together from RPMoutlet.com and ModularDepot.com for about the same price. But I got a Typhoon manifold instead of the stock plastic one. So I technically came out about $200-$300 less. Some people hate the typhoon but i have had too many problems with the plastic ones. That madulardepot place knows ALOT about PI swaps. But make sure you get ALL the parts you'll need for the swap before you start, or else your car will be in pieces waiting for the one little thing you forgot.

Thanks for the advice about all of the parts. That's why I specifically wanted to get a kit, so it would have EVERYTHING. They state on their site that the only thing it doesn't come with is oil and and oil filter.

Based on your install do you see anything that's missing from their list that you found mandatory or even helpful?
