Mike said $2300 for the A intake/ BBC exhaust, and $2100 for the CJ intake/BBF exhaust. Both configurations have a standard valve layout. He is also going to do a few sets with CJ intake/ BBC exhaust, similar to the old Blue Thunder B head. All I know is that there will be a lot of pullers and mud drag guys who finally have a set of heads that fit their needs.

Very Sorry Keith, next year I'll do better I promise.. I was doing good to get steady shots of the heads because my heart was still racing from the activity at the booth I was at just before we came to yours..... Travis was having trouble operating the camera on my iphone, so I got to hang on a little longer than usual..  Twisted Evil

hopefully these heads will not only fill the void now that the ex514 heads aren't being produced but also go beyond.

Best I remember the ex-514's were around 100 pounds each so if these are that or less that's good. Having any aftermarket iron head will help a lot of guys trying to compete in the all iron classes.

Todd, these heads are well under 100#. They are similar in weight to a stock head.

If that's the case that is another advantage because bbc heads are very heavy also. Only problem I am seeing with them is they are coming out about three years to late I no longer need them.

If the weight aint too big a deal in a build I'd take iron over aluminum. They tend to stay put better.

design

Post  Gary Blair on December 20th 2013, 4:23 pm

When I originally did the model 3 years ago Mike provided me with an aluminum semi finished version of the Compresco head. It was a lot easier to work with than iron that's for sure. I've had my fair share of grinding 460 iron LOL.

The EX514 and BT Iron CJ are cast off aluminum tooling which allows for thicker cross sections like the deck and other places. That's why they end up being so heavy in iron.

When I raised the valve cover rail 1.25" and desiged 4 individual ports it got heavier for sure LOL. I wanted to be able to use an A-460 intake on the raised port.

The concept I came up with was a sort of plug and play port selection. So when you select a low port the roof will be pretty thick. Now you could also do a raised CJ port as well. I tried to build as much flexability as possible into the design. Sometimes when you ask something to do too many things it doesn't want to. I had a girlfriend like that once. I think this head will do pretty well though.

This head will also have an indistrial application for alternative fuels.

I really wanted to get out to the PRI but I've been a little under the weather.

Would be cool to see a block with gm bell pattern and starter mounting
