Default What's wrong with AFR's exhaust port?

On another thread it was brought up that AFR's exhaust port leaves a lot to be desired. I would like to know what's wrong with the port... Please don't reply to this thread with flow numbers on such and such's flow bench. When it comes to the exhaust side of things you minus well throw the flow bench in the garbage because it means nothing. You can pretty much do that for the intake side of things as well but we will leave that for another thread because this is going to be complicated enough. So what's wrong with the port I ask? Countless engine builds putting up big numbers N/A and Boosted. I really want to know what's wrong with it.

IVe seen the AFR heads make some great power. I also think their pricing is pretty good as well.

I do think that cylinders heads bring up the ford vs chevy vs dodge kind of debate. Today's market has alot to offer as far as cylinder head choices. Theyve all come a long way , AFR, Brodix, Dart, etc. Lots of sizes shapes, and so on available. Plus we have many many head porters that can do alot too to improve on most of these heads.

I feel the statement of there being something "wrong" with afrs exhaust port is poorly worded based on someones opinion, and simply an incorrect statement .

After much research , I just laid my hard earned money down on a set of AFR 315's . The voices of experience here lead me to believe I'll be happy I did . Can you say engine jewelry that performs as good as it looks......
