Assault heads

Anybody have any experience with these? Seems like a killer price for a pair of complete aluminum heads! Haven't heard of them before...i assume some mild porting and polishing would be in order but....?

Try giving them a call and ask them about flow numbers or country of origin. The thing that I would worry about is if they were some of the early production Chinese heads that had all the problems.

More than likely they are a rendition of the Patriots that KMJ put their own brand on. I've had dealings with KMJ in the past and I would not recommend anything they offer.

that actually sounds like a really good deal...but the more I think about it I just wouldn't feel right about putting chinese castings in a 63 chev, even with u.s. valvetrain parts! Just wouldn't be right....especially for a Union worker!
