Brodix heads

back in the day Brodix was the head to have at least for most circle track guys at least round my area.. How do they compair now days with more competive companies like AFR? Are Brodix still great heads as they have been?
I was looking at a pair of IK200 for a build of mine 396 sbc

Yes. Brodix heads are fine. Just as all the major names make good heads. I wouldn't buy heads from somebody that didn't cast their own. Brodix, Dart, Edelbrock, all have their own foundry here in the United States or Canada.

When I was looking for new heads I wanted Trickflow, Twisted Wedge design, but they couldīnt deliver in the time available to me to do the swap.
I looked at all the other possibilities and the Brodix heads fitted right in, good price as well at Competition Products.

Cheaper now at C.P. than when I bought mine two years ago.

I have 200 Darts on my 355 Chev. It has more power than my previous 383 SBC with '71 corvette heads.

I would think 210's would be fine with your 396

My view the 210 will still give it a bit low end for street and yet still have good air velocity at 6000-7000 rpm when I want to crank it up..

A 396 cube motor will want a head at least 200cc in size. I wouldn't hesitate to go 225 or so. If you want to wick it up to 7000rpm like you say then i'm sure you'll be running a minimum 3000rpm converter.

A friend of mine has a nice 675hp 385cube LT1 (basically an sbc), he runs a 215cc head that flows 325cfm.

Brodix is very popular with the roundy round guys because they make a high quality product and they make a million different kinds of "spec" type cylinder heads for every class imaginable. Go order one of their catalogs and you'll see what I mean.

I agree with ya there.. As far as converter goes I'm have a 3500-3800 10inch that I'm going to use.. The 7000 rpm mark will be Around max, but mainly runing at 6500 or less, but if I want to crank it up a notch I can.. The motor is going into my 67 camaro 396.. Has a good ring to it lol but surprise it's a small block..
