I also like the cast water bosses near the deck under the exhaust ports. Controlling coolant flow especially in N2O applications will be important and having a boss to tap into will make it much easier to regulate.

Richard if I had my way I'd pump the coolant into the back of the head and out the front of it and seal the block and head off so that no coolant ever even touches the head gaskets... but that's a personal preferance.

it comes out raw?
The head is one of Edelbrock's Pro Port line of heads and thus requires extensive prep work to run.

Edelbrock provides 1/2" NPT holes in both ends of the heads for doing this.

A lot of NHRA guys running splayed heads weld and machine bosses near the deck for water in to even out cylinder head temps.

These are not bolt on heads... this is a real race casting meant for the porting guru's out there to work their magic on

I'd like to see what richard, greg good and a couple other guys I can think of can come up with

I bet we can see flow #'s that don't stall @ 1 inch of lift, and probably be in the 300+ sfm range REALLY early in the valve's lift range

Richard I was curious,are the off the shelf 205's Edelbrock sell too small for a 6.0?
They seem to flow very well and I would think they would work on a 6.0 engine just fine?

Or does your 215CC setups warrant a 6.0?
This would be for a heavy GTO with a mild 224 cam/3200 stall.

Exclamation Update

Uploaded a few images of some prototypes we just recieved. Edelbrock Splayed Head Update.

I'd like to tip my cap to the crew at Edelbrock for making such a nice part
This head represents a whole new approach for the engineering team at Edelbrock. I can say first hand that Vic is commited to making a top notch part for the racing LS engines because he had the design concept for this head created in a computer before any work on the patterns were started. The result is an improved degree of precision in the finished product and that makes our job of porting them more accurate and consistent.

There is still some work to do before we can start selling them including rocker geometry and intake manifold design.

I'm sorry but I have no pricing on castings at this time. I can confirm that there will be a HIP'd version available as an option

More to follow soon.

Richard

Yup,

Cool head, .. I just got my sample castings too.
I had a port in the cad file from one of my 455cfm heads and it actually
was very close, .. My plans for the first CnC program is a big bore / big valve
version. I should have the program done in a week or so and I was told castings will
be available in 2-3 months.
