Re: CNC Heads?

Doesnt take much to get those over 300 (same one chad uses probably)
x2 CNC doesnt mean its good..or bad. Figured it was a matter of time before those started floating around.

Played with a set of those and #s were strong everywhere pleasantly surprised.

Re: Carb recommendation. 468 Tunnel ram

Your friend is going to do what he wants, because he hasn't spent the time to learn. He will keep on doing what he's done because that's the easy way to go I agree, hes not hip to the latest Holleys and a little stuck in his ways. Yeah part of it is eye candy but cant blame him an old st rod like t...

Re: Opinions of guides in import heads

How is Darts quality far as guides these days?Had issues with a Conquest head many yrs ago, wasnt a geometry issue. If they are the slightest bit better than the offshore piece they look promising..didnt take much to get a strong # from them. Anyways keep the good stuff coming. GM seems to still use...

Re: Opinions of guides in import heads

Thanks for the info; got a set from someone for a personal project..curiosity more or less to see what all the fuss on line was about. In my mind always wondering about ways to improve wether it may be worthwhile or not. Some say run them, other say replace asap but wont give a specific reason. That...

Re: Opinions of guides in import heads

Sheesh, here it comes you know exactly what I meant.
They are cheap heads I wouldnt expect miracles from them, nobody doing a serious engine (I think) would use em but they got their place.

Im simply asking if your opinion is poor then what is your preferred type?

Re: Opinions of guides in import heads

sbc dart knockoffs for example.
Have a set that, all sized out pretty well but many dont (or so I hear).

Pressures could range from flat tappet to say 130-140 HR stuff.

Opinions of guides in import heads

For the guys who work on these a lot, are they sufficient for the avg st/strip guy?

Would you use a different one (which) and why?

Head some switch to iron, Im curious about using 8mm valves in a set.

All ears, like to hear the pros and cons. Assuming they would all need valve jobbed afterwards.
