    Nah. You should be fine. If anything because of the valve angle on the TW heads you'll have more clearance than with regular inline valve (every other small block Ford) heads.

    I can make some gasket recommendations. This gasket set is great for the intake manifold: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/fel-ms95952 Use the rubber end seals in the kit. They seal great. The port openings are the same size as the Fel-Pro 1250 gasket but the MS95952 does not develop water leaks like the 1250. For head gaskets these are really good: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/fel-9333pt1

    I just noticed you have an adjustable fuel pressure regulator. Set it to 39psi engine running, vacuum line off. Leave it at that. I just have a stock Motorcraft fuel pressure regulator on my car. Works fine with 30lb injectors and a calibrated MAF. Actually you could get away with the fuel rails/fuel pressure regulator that are on your car already and sell the aftermarket fuel rails and regulator. Just swap the 24lb injectors on to the stock fuel rails.

    Thanks for the gasket information. I have a set of the 1250's and was concerned about using them. Not fond of paper gaskets. For head gaskets I was going to use the FRP graphite gaskets, spray them with copper coat. Also going with the cam and lifters you suggested.
    I wanted to replace the regulator and fuel rails because I might put a Kenne Bell super charger on it in the future. Also the car will be going on a dyno after I'm done and wanted someway to adjust the fuel pressure if necessary. It's going to cost me around $800 for the dyno run and trying to cover items on a list they gave me. I would not want to do this twice.

    The FRPP head gaskets should be pretty similar to the Fel-Pro 9333PT1 gaskets. I wouldn't use the copper coat spray. Totally unnecessary, even with boost.

    A good tuning shop that actually tunes the EEC-IV shouldn't need the adjustable fuel pressure regulator at all.

    On the 95952 gaskets do they make one without the EGR ports? I'm deleting the EGR.

    They do not. I just drilled/tapped the EGR port between the upper and lower intake for a pipe plug. Worked fine.
