I think you'll find that Procomp dont make alloy heads for Clevelands, (only Ford Windsors).

Re: PRO COMP Aluminum heads....anyone used them?

I seen some alloy heads at the summernats. The Sydney Speed Supplies guys had them there. He said they were only $2000 complete. They looked like a copy of the CHI heads. But they were very bad castings. I think they were calling them PRO cOMP. I was talking to the guy about them. But soon walked away as the figures he was telling me was bullshit. Stick to the ones that are well known. And yes they were cleveland ones.

Ditto, the castings were Sh!thouse!
I thought they looked more like an AFD copy? Especially when he mentioned the port size (wasn't a CHI port volume)
I'd be paranoid about porosity, or a valve seat falling out.... is a $1000(? not sure what the current prices are?) saving worth the risk of a dead motor?
I'd rather spend the extra money and see it go to the guys who deveolped the heads and cast them here in Oz, not something that's a shameless copy made in China... expect to see more of the great Aussie made Clevo stuff apearing as Chinese made copies... theres a Chinese TFC(?) manifold copy getting around now.
Keep the money in Australia!

You'll find people will run them as they won't know any better. Plenty of people get sold a lesser product due to lack of knowledge.

Re: PRO COMP Aluminum heads....anyone used them?

The Windsor alloy heads are an USA head called Avenger...not sure if they are the real deal or copies of the Avenger.

The real Avenger is a very nice head...and makes good numbers. Suited more to a stroker or 351w. I know someone in states which uses these heads with 351w and loves them and makes around 450hp.
