Iknow yall getting tired of all these questions but building a new car I have more questions then I could ever ask,lol. OK I have a 70 cc minimum rule for heads I was running 993 heads but fond a crack so I took a set of 336 heads that I had laying in the shop had them shaved to 70 cc, valve job, good springs, and some port work in the undercover area cause its not legal. The guy building my new car said that the 336 and 993 are junk and are smog heads and will rob power cause the y flow so bad and that he had a set of heads that would out flow them 3 to 1 and the only diffence in machine work is there angle milled to 70 cc and the casting was 882. SO is the 882 heads any better than what I have or what

I don't know where anyone gets the idea that the 882 is a race head. The 993's are much better. 441 487 993 are the top three choices

882 HEADS ARE NOT A VERY GOOD CHOICE FOR A RACE CAR!!!!!........BUILD THE 441 HEADS AND YOU WILL HAVE SOMETHING!....

YOU WOULD HAVE TO TAPE A QUARTER TO THE 882 HEADS BEFORE YOU THREW THEM AWAY SO WHOEVER FOUND THEM COULD SAY THEY FOUND SOEMTHING WORTH WHILE!...LOL

they are thin and prone to cracking. i think they dont flow as well as some lead you to believe either. 487s are a much better choice for a hobby type car.

Yea, we know that the 993s, 441s,& 487s are good open chamber heads. Never count out the 882, I have seen them win features on lots of different cars.
