Give me some feedback of these guys Im looking into them instead of Edelbrock's with a Procharger.

I would like some realiability and Ive heard the Super Charger can be hard on your drive train like NOS and such.

They do look pretty trick, I have no idea if they are any better or worse than a good set of normal heads.


I'd hate to have to pay for a valve job on them.:L

those heads cost over $4000 and when I started asking questions about dependablity,guarantees, happy customers ,ETC.they stopped answering my questions! look around you those heads have been available for over 6 years, they used to be called DOMINION heads, if they worked really well over long time periods you would see some in use at the strip, they are damn far and few between out in the real world. altho I could not find any realy bad info I could also not find any happy customers either and when the company itself will not answer questions !!!!! well Im not going to spend $4000 plus on something that is not TOTALLY SUPPORTED

Those are some bad a** heads!
I had my heads ported for the LT1 (this is a real good job on what is a great flowing head to start), and those flow numbers blow mine away. At .700" valve lift I've got 270 CFM and these guys are getting 348 CFM.
Follow their cam recomendations and you'll be making some big power. Skip the supercharger unless you only drag race. Forced induction will kill you on the road course.

Grumpy, I agree if they don't want to support a product for (My money) 6000 Dollars they can bite me. However I do like the design etc.. And I have seen the Hotrod show on them (When they were called Dominion) I wish someone had them and I could get a response but I did send this company an email regarding price and some questions and we'll see what they say.

Im not looking to upgrade for some time the car itself is just wonderful, but more power is definitely in the future. So Im keeping an eye out for technological marvels and this just seemed to be one of them.

Oh well :beer
