Heavily worked cylinder heads

3192 20
These heads will be going on my car once I get the new darton sleeved engine built for it. They are 6.1 cores.

Stock chamber with stock guides. Stock seats were cut out and copper berrylium seats were installed for use with Extreme duty Manley valves 2.125" x 1.625".



Stock valve guides removed, heads have been cnc'd and the valve seats have been valve-jobbed.



Quench pad welded up to decrease CC volume.



Milled back flat and bronze valve guides installed.



Chambers cleaned up and polished. Chamber volume should be in the 60's but will verify today.

someone needs to build a high compression motor, like 13.5 to 1 and see how fast a NA car can really go.

No custom gaskets needed and the purple stuff is machinist dye.

Srt5939,
Hess would probably run around $3000. Im not sure as I haven't seen the bill yet myself. The copper beryllium seats and valves were pretty Damn expensive alone and that doesn't even include all the man hours in these heads.

AKA Blueing. We use it at work to set up gears in the Elevator Machines.

I'm thinking with heads that small, flat tops would get you in the High Compression neighborhood real quick. Those earlier mentioned eyelash jobs would really put it up there.

Nice welds btw. Machine done? If not, someone really knows how to lay a bead.

What does a 14.8:1 motor make - 600HP, 650HP? I don't know a lot about building motors etc., but the craftsmanship looks really good.
