Any chance the locks would be going on chev stuff? It'd be hard to till.

No. These were built specific for the head and install height. 11/32" Radial bead 10 degree with lash cap recess.

Here's an early article about them back in 2014 for anyone interested. Came across it by accident on a search about something else.

Have they bothered to dyno and track test them or are they racing and selling the flow bench?

What they should do is send out a couple of pairs to some of the well known engine builders on here and let them do a real world evaluation and what their potential may be. I'm pretty sure that some of the guys we all know and love on here could improve on what they have done. They have certainly done it in the past with other heads Wink

My two suggestions....

How about Phillip Oakley..... His son has a nice new dragster to get some real number from and he owns a dyno..... Dyno and track tested to prove they are worth a shit.

Or perhaps Blake The snake.... He will flog the shit out of them on demand and report the facts. And he likes to dyno stuff and has done plenty of the competitor heads

AFR thought this was a good idea. I left a message at Mr. Oakley's shop.

I think the site that was advertized on was a mistake. I have seen the prices be more inline with what Butter bean posted.

I think they have their own unique valve layout.

I don't remember where I read it but I think they require a dedicated piston.
