Has anyone ran a set of these heads 24 degree? Would be installed on 582 BBC. 15-1, may be ran on gas in cool months and alky in summer months. They would require custom special piston . How would these compare to a Bmf 385, or Headhunter 383?...I don't know any one who has a set, so have no data??.. thx!

380cc
118cc combustion chamber
2.40 intake 1.84 exhaust valve
Require shaft rockers

If that's Curtis Boggs head, I spoke with him about a set 2 years ago. He explained to get the best performance you really need to spin that thing between 7500 to 7800. Decided to go with the Dart CNC 380. Very happy with those shifting 7000. New build is using the 375 Profiler.

IF these heads are from RFD aka boggs, another self proclaimed internet guru that preys on the naive and misinformed that largely populate these forums, steer clear or you'll have no one but yourself to blame the outcome on, which I have stated for years and long before the internet forum crowd figured it out...

The heads you want are Brodix BB-3 XTRA O 365

We all have our favorite cylinder head and engine builders, (in my case I build my own engines) but leave the cylinder head end of it to someone who is an expert in that field. I respect all of your opinions this subject can become personal.

That said, I met Curtis Boggs about two years ago at his shop in Virginia Beach and, thanks to him for allowing me the time, had a lengthy conversation about the Edelbrock Heads. If I did not already have a great set of BMF385’s I would have seriously considered a set of heads from Curtis. Over the years I have had many conversations with Cylinder Head guys and know when I am being fed a line of BS, that was not the case with Curtis. He has a fully equipped machine shop filled with customers cylinder heads, (that list of names is impressive) and he absolutely knows the business. He also had a high regard for the heads mentioned earlier, that also impressed me.

Just throwing me 2 cents into the conversation but if you are truly considering a new set of cylinder heads I would contact Curtis.

I would say he did learn some things. Everything I have physically seen, that had his heads on them ran good. I have also heard that lead time can be a *****

read the thread, quality of work was the bigger issue. That said, it has been said in the same thread that he appears to be out of business.

Guy has a classified ad on here with a brand new set for sale, I was just looking at buying a set of heads, but didn't know anything about RPD heads. ...I will be bracket racing and 5.00 index race in door car.... I think I'll pass on the heads though....they may be good stuff but no one runs them from what I've seen.

I like my Cylinder heads from Curtis, he's a Great guy to deal with and they were well worth the wait. It just depends on what you're looking to do,they'll definitely out perform any out of the box conventional head. My little 565 is just a little shy of making 1100 hp. My Car will run 4.80's on motor with a tight nitrous converter .
