WAYNE - No offense, but using Pro Comp heads is a real kick in the teeth to the guys whose heads they have knocked off, CHI. I would be willing to bet that once you figure in all the work the Pro Comps will need because they are knock-offs and not as well finished (and are not proven to make the power that CHI's do out of the box) you will end up paying more and get less performance.

Did you know that Pro-Comp uses CHI's flow numbers in their advertising? Really shady. I'll bet they never put their heads on a flow bench, ever.

The CHI's are only $1500 a pair last time I checked. The numbers they have produced are mostly out of the box. Most of the builds you see with them are a pair of out of the box heads.

My 427 with CHI's makes 713hp @ 7000Rpm at the flywheel.

If you don't like the CHI's then check out the AFD's. AFD to has done it the right way by coming up with a head that does steal from others work.

Going with Pro-Comps only supports a bunch of people who have ripped off others hard work.

Just my 2 cents

Don't Richard. after all the mods, upgrades and changes everyone is doing, you and I will be the only guys who can still afford to buy gas! Smiler Plus, at the back of the pack, we'll get first dibs on the parts that fall off the cars in front!
