Guys,

We are building a 429 motor for customer. This engine needs to be spec legal for a racing class whose rules dictate using as-cast oem cylinder heads.

We currently have in our posession 3 sets of iron SCJ castings, but all of them have had some grinding done on the ports here or there. The least ported set we have is essentially as-cast, with the exception of a very, very mild gasket match on the intake port side (and no work done on the exhaust side). This minute gasket match goes into the intake port perhaps 1/2-inch only and so if you are thinking of porting your iron CJ's then the work done here is of no consequence whatsoever.

If we must work with what we have, then we will. It's just that we don't want to give the chebby guys so much as an iota of reason to complain. If anyone has an as-cast non-ported set and would be willing to make some kind of a trade, pair for pair, please give me a call. We will be happy to provide as many pictures as you want and guarantee your satisfaction.

Thanks,

Paul
