When choosing cylinder heads for your engine, CFM ratings are about the 5th most important thing on the list of important considerations.  The correct average port velocity, intake port volume, valve throat diameter, intake to exhaust flow ratio, valve diameter to throat diameter ratio, are all more important than a high CFM number.  Two heads with equal CFM numbers but different intake port volumes will perform quite different.  The head with the smaller port volume will usually have a higher average port velocity.  High air speed builds more torque by aiding with a more complete cylinder filling.  If an intake port has been hogged out and has a huge volume, it will make for soggy low RPM power, even if it has a high CFM number.

Each pair of Type E heads are custom built to match their intended use.  A bug will need a different cylinder head than a bus will.  We do not keep heads on the shelf ready to go because of this. 

These start life as AA Performance 500 series heads.  The valve guides are removed and discarded.  They are fully ported, while keeping the port volume small, and the airspeed very high.  The chambers are re-worked to un-shroud the valves.  The chambers are also flycut to meet the needs of the customers engine.   

New high quality silicon-bronze valve guides are installed, and then they get a Serdi style 3 angle valve job.  The heads are then flow tested, and fully assembled with high quality USA made HD single, or dual valve springs, stainless valves, ground keepers, and CroMoly spring retainers.  The heads are shipped ready to install.


For a bus, the 92x82/84 2180 or 2234cc, Web 218 or 163, 8.8cr, 40mm IDF's and these heads are a great combo. 

For bugs, 94x82 2276cc, Web 86B/FK8/cb2288, 1.4 rockers, 9.5cr, 44mm IDF's, 1 5/8" header, and these heads is a really strong combo. 


Intake port volume is 65-67cc

Average port velocity is 285 ft/sec.

Intake/exhaust ratio is 73-76%

Intake Flow is 175cfm @ .500"

All numbers are measured with a calibrated AudieTech Flow Quick controller, at 28" with a ported offset style manifold and a radius inlet. 


The customer will need to supply the manifolds to be used before porting starts.  The manifolds are part of the intake tract, and must be ported along with the head.
