    Default Edelbrock's new BBC Head

    I've been hearing about these heads for a bit and apparently they're ready for prime time. Developed by Edelbrock in collaboration with Curtis Boggs (google him, he's a serious bad ass in cylinder head porting/development world) and are now available to the public. 2 designs on a 4.84" bore center and 2 on a 5" bore center Dart/Brodix style block. Very cool stuff if you got the grip. For the lucky bastards that get to go, these heads will be on display at PRI.

    Why did Vic and Boggs dedicate so much time and money devbeloping another BBC head. Don't they know the BBC is dead. The LS killed it before it could even make a mark in the perfomance world. RIP BBC

    You certainly win the award for 1st person to dirty up a potentially good and informative thread.
    Damn, if I want this drama I'll sign up for a cross stitching msg board. Can't you wait until, at least, post #30?



    Anyone have anything useful? What's the dealio with these things? Potential applications, flow #'s, port volume, valve angles... $COST$

    There's many variables, but basically they have designs for NA and for power adders for both bore spacings. NA is using an 11*x6* valve angle and the power adder version 11*x6* angles. Jesel/T&D both have valve train componets available. A cast 3 piece single 4 manifold will be available at around the same time. Boggs thinks 600 CFM is totally doable and mentioned 1550 HP NA for a 650" puller application.

    BP, Boggs' company (Race Flow Development or RFD) has been doing a lot with Edelbrocks stuff for several years, but this is the next generation and I don't think anyone has a set yet. See pics of castings and Boggs has a few CNC programs, but is working on new ones for this particular casting... Sure there's more to come.

    Gotta wonder at what point is it no longer a BBC!!! Regardless I think this stuff is cooler than hell and given the power potential of the LS platform just glad companys are still developing parts for these old dinosaurs .... My hope is a few ballers will absolutely need these heads and I can pick up a set of RFD's previous generation stuff at a price I can afford!! Sucks being "kids in college" poor....

    david, i'm pretty sure jordan has edelbrock heads of some type. they must be working pretty good to push a placecraft jetboat to 8.00s at 121-123, na. because, as everyone knows, takes humungous gigantus hp to make a placecraft quick. and it would be real interesting to see anyone with an ls try to keep up with that boat... in any configuration...

    RFD and a few others have been doing some pretty cool things with the current Edelbrock 24* stuff. 2.45" intakes, something like 500 CFM potential. I might be mistaken, but it sounds like nobody will have this new design before PRI. Boggs has only posted pics of raw castings, nothing finished yet. Somebody got an extra ticket for PRI? I'll take pics and report back!! Miss having press creditials to this stuff!!

    After the last go around with you I figured out that argueing with you is like wrestling with a pig; you both get dirty but the pig likes it. After realizing this I said I'd let the personal stuff lie if everyone else did. I haven't posted a single comment about you, your business and have steered clear of all your threads since then. Then you post crap like this. I'd suggest you let it go, keep any comments regarding me to yourself and I'll continue to do the same.

    Jordans are 18's. They are pictured there in the middle of the 3. These new ones are a tottally and completly different animal. Jordans have been awesome, not a single issue with them though.

    That seems like a reasonable, grown up approach... doubtful it will go over very long here.

    The 4.84 center 11* and 14* Big Vic III heads have been around for a little while. They had them on display at Vic's Rev'd Up 4 Kids show at the Torrance plant in back in May. They said there were 5.00 B.C. versions as well but none on display.
    One of these days....
