You'd better post your address so that when you get the payment bill, we'll know where to send the Ambulance!!!

I would love to think it is all true, but for some reason I just dont think they are all they say. They say you can just bolt on these heads and get over 100HP? then do some fuel ratio changes to get 100 more? With a stock roller cam?
Kind of sounds like a "100MPG carb" story to me. But I hope I am wrong.
I think any engine that comes stock with 200HP is going to need some serious mods to get 600HP, they say these heads and a good engine is all you need? And with the right combo of parts you can get 1000HP?
Maybe I just misunderstood them?

This sounds reasonable to me,
more flow means more flow.

The only problem I see is the price...$5000 and up!
If you have the money, go for it.

If they flow what the say they will on the site the HP numbers sound reasonable. The price of admission is a little high for the bottom of the line heads but as you go upwards the numbers and cost is comparable to serious racing heads for the SBC (I don't know of a conventional SBC head that will flow the big numbers they claim - that's BBC territory!). The only concern I would have is something breaking while I was on the road because you probably can't just stop in a parts store or average service place for a quick fix. Nice for the novelty though.

Interesting...
I'll bet the cam and lifter loading is incredible. To be fair, I didn't read all the info, though.
It *did* say you could use a stock intake manifold. For some reason, I'm picturing a TPI setup imploding into the top of the engine at around 5500 or so.
Yeah. I'm warped.
