Just fired mine up today with a set of steel 188's no more procomp for me . there combustion chamber is different than stock is why you hit.

we are using a stud girdle it is recommended to use one with my cam, The castings were the only part or the pro comp heads he was ok with using he also said the assembly was very poor and would not have worked with even a smaller cam. I would never buy another set I traded a better set of heads for them I had a set of 69 427/454 rectangle port aluminum heads that needed valves I traded for this set
