But for several reasons, strange as some may be, the PC heads have a place, and they are very reliable and strong performers.
you mention that you guys build these motor's, that's weird cause i have seen the exact same motor with the exact same specs and exact same valve covers, everything, being sold by other performance shops.
i have nothing against skip white's performance shop as i have bought a few products online from them and they have been good quality and have been received in a very timely fashion.
you mention that these heads are strong performers, i disagree, they dont have good flow numbers at all. they dont flow any better than a set of RHS 180 pro actions and if you compair them to a set of RHS/DART/brodix/AFR... the list goes on heads with the same runner sizes you will really see where they are inferior. i've also heard that they are made with inferior metals/aluminum and that is why you can buy them online all day long for 649.99 (you get what you pay for).
i too know machinest who will use PC products, but only when given a very low budget or when dealing with someone who askes for them beacuse of their price, if you ask a machinest if they would build their own motor with them they will tell you NO!!!
one other thing is to use 210cc heads on a 383 with the hyd cam used and to make 440hp is all mismatched.
