I know a guy around here that sells cylinder heads that are not a known name brand. I am wondering if they could be the same heads. I know they were 190 cc runner heads with 2.02 valves. He said they were cast from the old Pro Top-Line castings. Don't know for sure though. I helped a friend of mine put together a 350 for a mud truck with these same heads and it ran really well for stock set of heads with a solid lifter cam.

He also sold them for the same price. Had heart shaped combustion chambers also.

Not much to be careful about; they make some pretty nice castings. I'm getting ready to put a 383 together with some. I've used Chinese cranks and rods too.

I have a Scatt rotating assembly in my 385 stroker, my machinist was so skeptical when it came time for balancing only to be proven wrong, every rod and piston combo with in 1/2 gram of each other:yes::yes::D

There's nothing wrong with Scat parts. Been using them in SBC and VW engine forever. Just put a set of Scat rods in my BBC and I'm not worried in the least little bit, neither is my machinist.

Most of the machinists and engine builders I've dealt with and talked to actually prefer the Scat line over the Eagle and RPM stuff. Not saying there's anything wrong with the others, just that the finishing work done by Scat seems to be of a higher quality.

I've used all three in different builds and haven't had any issues.

But lets face it folks, there's a LOT more to accurately casting and machining cylinder heads than forging and machining cranks and especially rods.

I'm willing to venture a guess and say the heads in question here are made by Pro-Comp Electric. And I'd be highly surprised if I'm wrong. How about some more information on them, or a web address where they can be found?

For those looking for an ALL AMERICAN MADE set of aluminum cylinder heads that are genuinely designed by AMERICANS to WORK. This is hard to beat!!

http://www.profilerperformance.com/sbc-heads-176.html

Then there's the Summit Racing offerings that are cast by Brodix and Trickflow (Both KILLER castings) for under a grand as well...

Nice price. Edelbrock heads assembled are 570 each, not a bad deal. JR
