hey everyone, ive decided due to cost effectiveness I would like to use pi cams in my 95' heads but ive heard there could be issues with coil bind..is there any way i can clearance the heads by removing material to make room for the cam? what exactly is it that restricts the 95 heads from using pi cams and how can I fix this?

Yes, the coil seats can be machined I think, but with that kind of work I would guess a decent set of 96 + NPI or PI (if you can live with the increase in compression ratio) would be cheaper.

the 95 heads are junk. scrap them and buy 96+ F5ae heads. The 92-95 F4ae heads have horrible valve guide design that wipes out the seals. Also the ports are improved on the F5ae design. you will spend more at a machine shop trying to fix crap heads than just buying a set of used f5ae heads

hahaha well, f5 heads it is! Ill check my local scrap yard maybe ill find them at a descent price, and if that fails then ebay...since i'll be taking the heads off, should i go ahead and order ARP head studs or just reuse stock head bolts? btw wouldnt head studs make it impossible to bolt the heads back on? i really cant imagine the heads sliding on the studs theres absolutetly no room side to side!?

Get the Ford head changing kit, it comes with new bolts and exhaust gaskets. No need for studs and they would be a biach to install in the car.
