It's been a pleasure working with Lou and his engine builder Joey.
Just a little update on the Profiler heads. They were designed by Darin Morgan who was at Reher-Morrison at that time. Yes, they had some minor problems in the beginning. Since they came out, (and since Lou got his),Darin Morgan has gone to work at Profiler and has made some changes and updates. Lawes Mayfield and I have been to the plant and have spent the day there working with Darin, Dave, Ray & Mike. I appreciate the opportunity to work closely with the manufactuers. Some refinements for the 2008 Profiler #205 heads include;
1. More material in the exhaust venturi area. Darin wanted this for better flow.
2. They added material above the roof of the exhaust ports where it was thin.
3. They gave us an exhaust guide boss, in order to help conduct heat away and stop fracturing the exhaust guides due to a lean and mean tune-up.
4. Improved and corrected the bolt hole locations for the additional eight 7/16ths bolts.
In regards to flow, the Kentucky Krew is getting around 550/560 cfm out of the intakes, and around 360/370 cfm out of the exhausts, with the steep angle valve job, but without a test pipe. If anybody wants a set of them, I have an extra set of the 2008 heads in stock right now. I'll be glad to sell them to you.
Hope this helps,
