Bare castings DO NOT include valves, springs, seals, retainers, locks ect.

Track Eliminator (Raised intake ports) heads available for an additional $100.00


LEVEL 1 - TA Performance Stage 1 (SE)

LEVEL 2 - TA Performance Stage 1 (SE)
$3199.00 (pair)
Includes Level 1 plus: Intake and Exhaust valve bowls are reworked to properly blend in the valve job with the port. Valves are back cut with proper angle to work with these heads.

Recommended for a very cost effective increase in flow. Bowl blending helps make the heads more efficient without enlarging port volumes, which helps maintain port velocity for milder car/engine combinations. Optional valve choices are available. Track Eliminator (Raised intake ports) heads available for an additional $100.00.


LEVEL 3 - TA Performance Stage 1 (SE)
$3650.00 (pair)
Includes Level 2 plus: Entire intake and exhaust ports are ported and polished to give excellent flow numbers throughout the
.100” thru .600” valve lifts. Head bolt boss is reshaped, sharp edges left by CNC machining are blended to increase flow. Combustion chambers are polished and modified for increased flow.

Recommended for a stealth ‘stock’ look with a painted B-4B intake and our ported cast iron exhaust manifolds,
or headers. These heads will give you the same flow as a Stage2 intake port and almost as much flow thru the exhaust ports. Recommended for serious street/strip and race cars only. Optional valve choices are available. Track Eliminator (Raised intake ports) heads available for an additional $100.00.


LEVEL 4 - TA Performance Stage 1 (SE)
Call for price
