Edelbrock Performer RPM Heads

Post  BUFORD93 on November 19th 2017, 4:02 pm

Hello all,
             I am currently looking at purchasing a car that has a 545 BBF in it all nicely done. The motor currently has Edelbrock Performer RPM heads (not the best I know) on the motor. What heads can I put on this motor as a upgrade where I would not have to change pistons, header ect? This is a drag car and I am looking for max performance.  The car also has a Edelbrock Victor intake on it as well. Any information or suggestions would be great.

Thank You

Who told you they aren't very good?

Those heads work fine, I'd just send them out for a port job and maybe install some bigger valves and an updated valve job.

I have a set of home ported ones that made 800hp ona 466 they aren't bad.

My thoughts, exactly.

Well if I purchase the car it sounds like it might be worth having the heads worked. Thanks for the feedback.

Also how do the vale angles on the Edelbrock head compare to a FMS SCJ, Kasse P-51 or the AFR heads?

Well said . I like them Smile Have made some good power on them. They do have some odd lumps and bumps but some porting gives nice results
