Edelbrock Heads

I was wondering if anyone has used Edelbrocks Victor Jr SBC heads personally and what you think of them. Thanks.

I have ported a few sets of Victor Jr. heads, these are race heads for
a high RPM or big cubic inch engine. There are better heads out there
but with a good port job they can make plenty of power with the right
combination.

Thanks for the reply,I'm planning on building a Twin turbo 406. I have most of the turbo stuff but I was wanting a good affordable aluminum heads to offset the extra weight.

Never bolted 'em on a motor, but have heard from those who have. Don't take the published flow figures from Edelbrock to the bank. Multiply them times .9 or .95 to get a realistic interpretation.

Everyone inflates their flow figures, so you have to factor them for yourself. They may not out and out lie about the figures, but they can use different atmospheric conditions, larger bore fixtures, reduced stem valves, 179 angle valve jobs (just being silly here) and other variables to skew the outcome.

havnt used edelbrock victor jr. heads but i do have a set of brodix track1 heads and i have to say i am pleased with them. that being said if i ever buy another set i will but a set AFR 210s. those heads flow big numbers out of the box and come fully cnc. thats the heads i wanted but some times the wait can be a few weeks unless you can find some instock. not mention that the deck surface on the AFR head is 3/4'' thick. perfect for turbo app.

I've pretty much taken anything that has edelbrock on it off my list! Seems like they are putting lots of junk out there.
