Custom-Made Cylinder Heads, Intake Manifolds, & Carburetor Spaces
Enhancing engine performance by increasing the air flow is a complicated task. The carburetor, carburetor spacer, restrictor plate (if required), intake manifold, cylinder head, exhaust manifold, and system must all perform as a seamless unit to achieve the optimum in induction, combustion, and exhaust efficiency. All of these components are important, but a properly modified cylinder head is the key to producing race-winning horsepower. Anything from Mild to Wild!
However, finding the ideal shape and volume for both the ports and combustion chamber is a complex, time-consuming task. Porting a cylinder head for peak performance requires the proper tooling, a flow bench, access to an engine dynamometer, and, above all, years of knowledge and experience. The same expertise and equipment is required to properly modify intake manifolds and carburetor spacers. Given the time, knowledge, experience, and tools required to prepare a race-winning intake tract, most racers are far better off having the work performed by professionals like those at Steve's Head Shed in Blacksburg, South Carolina.
