Speed-port 6000 and Speed-port 7000

BRAND NEW aftermarket aluminum heads for the 409 W engine ! These are based on the factory large port "690" / "583" castings, and will interchange directly... accepting the use of the factory 2X4 intake ( for the restoration minded enthusiast ), or with the also new, vastly superior, single plane matching intake for 2 X 4 barrels. Flow bench research is indicating that the new heads, besides being about half the weight, will flow approximately 10-15% more, after basic port work. Fully ported versions are showing flow in the 350 / 235 CFM range, measured at .600" lift. 

Here are few photos of the heads near completion:

PRICE:

Bare heads, with bronze guides installed......................... $2995.00 CDN / $2695.00 U.S.
