If you had half a clue what you were talking about, i may of given this some thought. In what way does a 440source head look or perform like an Mopar Edelbrock head, other than the intake bolts up the same and the standard valve covers can be bolted on each in the same manner.
quote from another RACER on moaprts "Just got done doing some very mild port work on these 440 Source heads. Nothing new to anyone on here probably, they are alot like the Edelbrocks ofcourse."
I would love to know how many sets of heads you have done any port work on and if you infact have even ran your fingers around a 440 source intake runner to feel what shape they are.
I have seen the crap that goes on in Moparts. It is all a load of crap over there. All i see is "if it aint American made, i would not buy it" time to wake up people. If you want products at realistic prices and of quality, you have to do the hard yards and make it happen, and if contracting overseas work helps and makes a product cheaper, then so be it.
If i remember rightly, 73_ralley asked the question here, i replied with real world knowledge and not something someone else had writting. So unless you know what you are talking about, put up or shut up..........
I know from expereince That is the only reason I mention the spark plug angle on this psot, I should have known that Brandon would have address that issue before selling them
Check out the difference in the intake flange.
I just want to hear real FLOW NUMBERS, and runner cc's, NOT hype! I have a hard time understanding all the hysteria from a product that has NO real specs available. I mean how do you market a cylinder head w/o having flow specs, what bothers me is WHY with a head that Brandon says he has put so much into does he not even have the flow numbers available, thats really all that should matter.. I know my opinion is probably not worth much since I have only been building engines my WHOLE adult life, had a flow bench for a dozen years, but what the hell..
I guess when your appealing to the "budget" minded consumer, those things don't really matter..
I have nothing against Brandons stuff....as I'm anxious to see the results guys have with his new aftermarket blocks when they come out. But I won't sign up to buy one until other people check them out first...lol.

That was my point.Is there that much of an improvement to make the change?i could see it being a great replacement head.As for an upgrade to a performance head it looks like the e brock is a better choise.
I don't care who's head that is, that is not good at all!! When we install big valves and un-shroud the chambers we scribe it w/ a gasket, (as all competent engine builders do) and make sure we don't cross into the fire ring of the gasket, if you do that, ALL the integrity of the gasket is gone..
When the gasket is torqued its gonna push into the cylinder a little more and exacerbate that problem further. I don't have an easy fix for that one..
Fast thanks for the great info. So what would be the fix for something like that??? weld the chamber up wear the gasket over hangs and then recut the chamber? thanks Mopar65
Well, not here to bash anyone, but the ONLY effective repair on that casting using one of the gaskets that have been tried by Dwayne would be a little bead of weld in those areas then a bit of cleanup and resurface..
I believe any competent head guy with a tig welder should be able to handle that, we could do it w/o too much effort, although its a shame to have to do that to a brand new head..
