SBC Heads - Open Chamber or Closed Chamber

What is the difference and how can you tell them apart? Which is better for a racing application?

the difference is a boat anchor and a performer the closed chambers are the best. you can tell the difference by the chambers size, closed chambers uselly have a quench area( flat spot) by the spark plug area leading into the head surface.
