    Default Profiler 24 bbc heads ?

    Anyone out there have any experience with profiler heads. I am looking at a 320 cc oval port bbc head.

    I am just wanting to know about overall quality and how well they are machined.

    Beautiful castings, so-so machine work, horrible drainback on the one cylinder head, best to add an exterior drain back to the pan cause its a bitch when you warm the thing up then pop the valve covers off. Some have had issues with them cracking on both the spread port and conventional heads, we have not had any issues. If your getting some kind of a deal on them then go for it otherwise go BMF or Canfield.

    $1800 with cnc chambers,5 angle seats and manly severe duty valves directly from profiler. I need to figure what intake will work with a 4150 flange since the ports are raised.

    You have to ask yourself why they're so "cheap", and if you're buying a headace. Also, are you putting yourself in a corner for needing more expensive "profiler only" parts?

    Well the intake is priced the same as a dart or brodix. Everything else is normal bbc stuff, studs, rockers, guides ect. My RPM air gap wont work with my new combo anyway. Its is just their winter deal. I don't think their is anything wrong with them I just would like to know if anyone has had any problems good or bad.

    You will be time and money ahead to buy bare castings from profiler and have a good machine shop do the valve job and assemble them. I have been down this road with profiler and many others and their assemblys and valve jobs are terrible.

    Now that they have Darin Morgan from Reher & Morisson, the valve jobs and heads are supposed to be MUCH BETTER.

    I had Darin Morgan do some 12 degree Raptors for me while he was at RM and they were every bit as bad as Profilers. They just don't seem to care if they put out a quality piece, just get it out the door.

    Hmmm I have heard nothing but good things about him. Our builder thinks pretty highly of him and worked with him for years. You win some and lose some.....

    I'm not saying that Darin does bad work, he isn't hands on as far as what goes out the door. He is more of an [email protected] guy but the companies are the ones who don't care. Unless you are a very special customer and I mean very special they just send the stuff out the door.
