You're swapping out the SVT Contour heads right? How's that going to give you more power? PLEASE, PLEASE explain...I'm kinda mechanical illiterate. I can install a mean stereo though. Man, if I only knew mechanical AND electrical, I'd be setOriginally posted by the_spy_guy@Apr 12 2004, 08:59 PM

The engine im pullin has svt heads and cams. Since the svt heads are designed for a 2.5l engine, the area insude the head is smaller. When put on a 3l engine, it bumps the compression ratio from 10:1 to 11.25:1 creating more power.
The svt heads also have extrude hone intake ports as well as the svt cams giving a more "agressive" timing (longer duration, etc.)
