Im gonna be in the market here soon for a decent set of heads. Im looking for what most of us are...budget friendly yet reliable and decent performing heads.
ive done a lot of forum browsing on the web and havent come up with much on the Jegs brand heads. I haven't found any bad reviews on them either. Just kinda wanted to see if anyone here has used them or can give me any info related to them. Ive heard they were profiler castings. Ive heard they were Canfield castings. But i havent been able to find any first hand reviews on them other then the review they had in the Sept. issue of car craft.
This may not be an apples to apples camparison, but if the flow charts are any indication or even accurate for that matter, it seems the Jegs head is a strong runner up. Seem it really comes down to quality of the hardware.
Keep in mind that for now this is a 355cid engine with a small popup piston, around 9.8:1 with the 76cc GM iron heads(hoping to bump this up with 64cc chambers), and a Comp MTH cam .489/.476 lift 287/305 adv. dur.
What I know:
AFR 195 Street $1531.98 shipped
Jegs 195 $1013.97 shipped
I know AFR makes a great product and fills them with good hardware. I also know that Jegs is a company proud of there products and would imagine they're not filling their heads with cheap chinese parts.
I know there is a few other heads, profiler, patriot, rhs ect. too
What your opinions? anybody here have any experience with them??
