Trick Flow builds engines and tests the results on its in-house dyno because it's an important part of their development process. In fact, no cylinder head goes out the door until it's been put through the test on the Superflow engine dynamometer and comes out making the desired horsepower. To test the new 351C Power Port Cleveland 190 cylinder heads, Trick Flow built a 383ci engine with a 9.65:1 compression ratio. Engine builder Ron Greczanik stuffed the 2V block with a Probe forged crank and pistons, Eagle Specialties rods, and a Crane 0.236/0.240-inch lift hydraulic roller cam. Other bits include an Edelbrock Performer Air-Gap intake manifold, Trick Flow 1.73 roller rocker arms, and an MSD Billet distributor. Outfitted with a Holley 750-cfm Double Pumper carburetor and 13/4-inch dyno headers, the 351 proved to be a stout motor, cranking out almost 524 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque. Like a Cleveland 4V, peak horsepower came in at a lofty 6,500 rpm. Peak torque arrived at a touch over 4,500 rpm. But the Power Port heads shined down low as well, with more than 400 lb-ft of torque available at 3,000 rpm. Thanks to Trick Flow and its Power Port Cleveland heads, you can now build a 351 Cleveland (or a 351M, 400, or 351W) that is a true all-around performance engine that's at home on the street or at the track. Follow along with us and we'll show you some of the more interesting details in this Cleveland combination build.
