As performance junkies, we’re always looking for the latest product to improve our car’s performance. It’s a never-ending quest to make our cars faster, quicker, and handle better than they ever did from the factory. So, when we saw Frankenstein Engineering Dynamics‘ new big-block Chevy head at the show, we had to learn more.
They have unleashed their latest 23-degree big-block Chevy head on the market, and we spoke to Chris Frank, and paid close attention as he told us, “Edelbrock has been working with us on this head for a couple of years. Our design improvements include a better deck structure, revised valve locations, raised exhaust ports, and it uses a Big Chief valve cover, which allows the use of a longer pivot-length on the rocker arms. Using a longer rocker arm allows for a more stable valvetrain, allowing the engine to achieve higher RPM.”
But, does this reconfigured head require the use of a special intake? According to Chris, no it does not. He clarified by saying, “The intake ports come in several variations, so you can run an intake with a traditional port like an older style Dart or Brodix that are .300-inch off the deck, or a custom piece, with a port up to .700-inch off the deck.” He continued, “We’ve also revised the pushrod locations so we can run more cross-sectional area though the entire port”
This head might not be designed for the average street guy, but those looking for the ultimate in big-block Chevy performance might have just found the perfect cylinder head. To find out more, contact Frankenstein Engineering Dynamics.
