Definitely SB2.2 heads !!! These heads are awesome , though a little pricey to convert to . Call Mark at Weld Tech , he will set you up with the best heads on the market .

The cnc 18 degree from Edelbrock are the best race ready head for the dollars. McDowell ran them last year on the HAT circuit

has anyone run the Canfield heads? I looked at the castings, I was inpressed with the workmanship on the runners and the make of the head. I was told that you could make them flow around 320 cfm with a really good port job....anyone had any success with them?

If you've got the cubic inches, the best deal for the price is the Pro Action 23 degree iron cylinder heads. I got a set of them assembled for a roller motor from AFR, with a port matched intake, delivered for under $1500, all brand new. They come with all the good components, and they flow 312 cfm out of the box (with 235cc intake runners). The heads alone are only $995 assembled for roller motors, or I believe $795 for a solid set ready to go. If you are building a large cubic inch claimer/modified type motor, these are the way to go!

Track 1 Brodix. Just take them out of the box and bolt them on. I run them on a 406 with AMRA and run with all the big motors.

Stick with the Brodix head.They have some of the best heads + when you sell them everybody knows Brodix.On the Canfield heads my engine man sells alot of them .I havent heard any complaints, there real good for the price.

I had a chance to do a side by side comparison of the darts vs canfield and the canfield was MUCH lighter...more machine work had been done to the head...plus in the runners had been already machined around the guide....looked really nice and sleek. The darts were really basic looking to me and had very little work done to the inside of the head around the runners and water. I think the Canfield is definitely the better buy between those two. I wonder how it compares to brodix.
