Alloy cleveland heads

Street Machine for once has something interesting ... alloy heads for clevelands for about $4200 aus ..complete.
They apparently need a bit of a tickle to get them flowing really well but they are looking at 525hp and about 450ft/lb potential for very mild work .
I need work so I can pay for it !!!!:crazy1: :crazy1:
I also wonder what specs the valves and valve springs are .. is it one of those 'complete' efforts where if yoou want more than 250hp you need to change everything ... but anyway..good to see some decent aftermarket heads !

Could you make a Boss motor out of a late model 5.0 (or 5.6 ) EFI Windsor?

Why would you bother when you can get Edelbrock's/ Holley,then more upmarket Trick flow's[T.F.S] Twisted Wedge heads starting price $2200 up to $3.000 full cnc ported..www.trickflow.com

AFR /Airflow research have excelent heads 165cc 185 cc &205cc
www.airflowresearch.com All these headswould flow 400 + H.P out of the box with all the good valve gear...Pluss they have inlets to match why bother???

You certainly can Falchoon!
It will require modification of one of the larger EFI intakes like the Edelbrock Victor 5.0,TFS-R,Holley or (if you're rich)BXR. Port spacing is the same but shape is different,you'd be port matching anyway though. Bolt holes will need to be modified to suit the angle bolts on the cleveland heads.
Easy!

It's true what ebxr8240 says; Aftermarket windsor heads are plentiful and make good power and torque. Still if you wanted to be different cleveland heads would be good.

Re: Alloy cleveland heads

hi wayne just joined your forum
i was noticing that you are talking about some very hi dollar alloy heads.
i am some what left wondering
why all those dollars, because i run a cleveland , with 351-c open chamber heads and with exhst plates and , other roller parts comp cam
i am pulling approx 500hp so as i see it for all of this money i can get 35 more hp. i dont see the bang for those hi dollar heads.
just my opinion thank you wayne

Dont bother, the late model wheezor blocks are weak and crack in half with decent HP or abuse..
