Anyone running these heads in a dragster? Also, which intake, Edelbrock or the MBE billet. Currently running A 12 degree profiler, but time for an upgrade.

Here’s what I can tell you, I have yet to see a Brodix 9 degree headed engine run near the same speed on the same day at the same track as the fastest guys in the country and 2 of them are running Dart 11 degree heads and the other Brodix PB5000 heads.

That said a good friend of mine is having an MBE 9 degree engine built right now.

My 9* 648 is being freshened then sold. I am building a 615 SR20 for next season.

We won the PDRA Elite TS World Championship with a PAR 706 with Brodix 9 degree heads. Would run 4.50 on motor and 4.10 on 2 stages a single APD carb. Switched to a tunnel ram setup and went 3.96. Those heads can be made to run fast.

Stinnett is running the MBE Dart 11* and also agrees with this. He would prefer to run the 11* than the 9*. Although the 9* flows more, it's hard to actually make more power with it is my understanding from our conversations. Obviously he used all the technical terms and reasonings but that flew about 50 miles above this Accountant's head lol.

I haven't seen Craig Andersen's new combination run yet but I know his previous 9* combination would run close to Stinnett. However, not sure on weight and other factors, just the number that pops up on the board.

I’ve spoken to Stinnett and Craig Anderson’s previous 9 degree combo had nothing for Stinnett.

It could be that Andersen at an 11* at the time but it was certainly 2019 season in the yellow APD car he was within 1 mph of Stinnett.

Also congrats on the win!

Last year at The US Nationals I pitted right across from Craig with the yellow APD car and he was not within 1 of Stinnett who was the 3rd fastest behind #2 Steve Williams and #1 Billy Torrence

Good for you, but as I stated in 2019 on multiple occasions he was so not sure what the deal was in Indy last year that you saw. As we sat out 2020 and only been out a handful of times locally this year cant speak to anything recent.
