Has anyone heard of some "Vortec" heads out there that are being cast over in Austrailia, have a little bigger runners then a stock Vortec, and have 2.02/1.60 valves to start with? I found a set, but don't know how they flow - seems like they address all of the shortcomings of the stock vortecs.

Oops - sorry I should have clarified that. No I'm not talking about any of the Pro Topline heads - these are more or less a no name through a distributor. I thought they were RHS/Pro's at first also.

i live in australia, and i have to admit i know nothing about these. i'm not even sure what vehicle they would have come out on.
the only vortec heads i've seen have been on direct imported US pickups like our GMC, and on used US imported engines.
I would be interested to know more about these if it is true.

the Pro Topline heads were designed & manufactured in New Zealand not Australia.

There is the link to the set I was looking at. They are also making them in aluminum. At first glance it's like they solved every problem known to Vortec-dom, but they don't have any flow numbers so I have no idea if they are good or not. Thoughts?
