The Chevrolet Performance 18-Degree V6 Aluminum Race Cylinder Head offers a significant improvement over conventional Chevrolet designs. They feature an 18 valve angle vs. the older 23 angle design with 43cc chambers. They also feature relocated valve centerlines, shallow combustion chambers, centrally located spark plugs and high-flow exhaust ports. The relocation of valve centerlines (.275" toward the intake manifold) minimizes shrouding at high lift and also allows the installation of larger valves (up to 2.20" diam. intake valves in some applications). These changes produce a substantial improvement in total airflow potential! Raised intake runners maintain the runner/port relationship with the revised 18-degree valve angle. This low-port version has excellent flow at low valve lifts due to their tall short-side radiuses and deep valve bowls. The shallow wedge-shaped combustion chambers allow builders to achieve high compression ratios with small piston domes. Spark plugs are .350" closer to the center bore than previous designs which improve flame travel across the chamber and reduce spark advance requirements. High-flow exhaust ports are .450" higher and .240" wider at exhaust manifold flange than previously. This minimizes turbulence in the runner and provides a smooth transition from the valve bowl to the header pipe for increased exhaust flow.

WARNING: Motor vehicles contain fuel, oils and fluids, battery posts, terminals and related accessories which contain lead and lead compounds and other chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. These chemicals are found in vehicles, vehicle parts and accessories, both new and as replacements. When being serviced, these vehicles generate used oil, waste fluids, grease, fumes and particulates, all known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and reproductive harm.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are: lead from lead-based paints, crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber. Your risk from exposure to these chemicals varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure, work in a well-ventilated area and with approved safety equipment, such as dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
