I read an article back in the 70s about cutting up a set of cleveland heads and furnace brazing them back together.I would hope by now someone just made new castings from Al. I doubt enough racers would buy the heads though,probably not worth it with all the better technology available now. BMW still uses an inline 6.
what ever happened to the GM over head cam 6 offered 10 years ago?

Anyway, good ET all things considered!

Circa 1976. Orange County Dragway. '61 Falcon coupe ("Humpin' Henry"). 300 six, Clifford manifold/header (custom), Roush "Cleveland" head (351C heads carved up and welded back together for a 6). 10.60s over 125.
That six has had more "goodies" made for it and won more races than any other straight-6 I know of. Remarkable performance potential, surpassing the Chevy and Dodge offerings of the era.
Don't discount Clifford Per4fromance. While much of their stuff is "dated", it still WORKS!
Cool idea, the 6.
