semi open/closed heads

has anyone ever heard of kidney shaped chambers rather than open or closed chambers on a set of 2v heads that have been built for gas

Re: semi open/closed heads

I have kidney shaped chambers , only because they are alloy heads . I have never heard of this in a 2v ford head. Are they standard closed chamber heads that have been reshaped? I personally would choose a head with the correct volume or cc to suit my needs. If these kidney shaped ones are the right volume, go for it. Still, i cant see an advantage with them. The alloy ones that are kidney shaped have other differences like spark plug location ect, while still retaining good compression due to lower chamber volume. If i didnt have alloy heads, i would be using closed chamber 2v heads.

Re: semi open/closed heads

sometimes the closed chamber heads are refered to as kidney shaped. I think this is an american term

Re: semi open/closed heads

They might be Yella Terra LPG heads which have had the chambers modified and exhaust inserts put in ??? Pics would be good !!!
