    America's favorite high-performance cast iron small block cylinder heads offer big power and bigger value. Chevrolet Vortec Cylinder Heads' fast burn combustion chamber and high-velocity ports combine to produce big horsepower. Vortec Heads can be mildly ported for additional performance and milled up to .040'' for increased compression ratio. The Vortec Heads come with various intake and exhaust valve sizes to complement the high-velocity port design and your performance needs. Vortec Heads outflow Bow Tie Heads right out of the box and are a 20 to 40 horsepower bolt-on increase over earlier cast iron small block heads. Vortec Heads require a Vortec-style intake manifold due to an improved manifold mounting flange and gasket design and raised intake ports. Modifying the heads to accept early intake manifolds is not recommended. Vortec Cylinder Heads fit all 1955-Present small blocks except LT1/LT4 reverse coolant flow engines and current LS1-style engines.

    JEGS Easy Kits are designed by JEGS professionals so you get all the parts you need.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vortec Cylinder Head Pleased with the part. Found Jegs to be more expensive on the needed accessory parts: head gasket, new intake, intake gasket, and bolt kits. Bought those from Summit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as described! Product was delivered faster than promised and was great quality!! Don't bother shopping at any other parts suppliers, Jegs has it all.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great heads for the money; super-fast shipping Even though their price has risen substantially, these GM Vortec heads are still a great value compared to properly rebuilt GM heads or new aftermarket heads. And I'm not sure any of the Vortec copies flow as well at low lifts (up to .500") as the real GM versions. That said, my heads' valve travel was only approx .480" before the retainers hit the guide seals. I was able to increase that to approx .510" by fully seating the seals using an old seal and 1/2" socket. That's more than enough (including safety margin) for my cam's .451" valve lift.

    You will nee to find an intake that will fit these heads, we have aluminum. You may also need a carb adapter for the intake.

    question is what full roller rocker is compatible with these heads with stock height valve covers

    Asked by: 54mike
    We would recommend these rocker arms, but you will need to check the clearance as there are many different OEM valve covers available. https://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS-Performance-Products/555/20140/10002/-1

    I have 10239906 heads i need to replace on my mercruiser 350 will these 12558060 heads work?

    Asked by: Bms30
    They will bolt on, but so not carry a marine certification if that is needed.

    Just purchased the vortec heads kit #12558060k2. I am now going to purchase the lunati cam#638-10120302 for sbc 350 and my question is upon ordering can i get springs and pushrods for the 507 lift??

    Asked by: Kevin Gathers
    Here is a valve spring option - http://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS-Performance-Products/555/514120/10002/-1 You will need to measure your pushrod length for the standard length that you have.

    I know the stock Chevy vortec heads were prone to cracking in certain areas. Do these heads have a heavier casting, or are they the same as stock?

    Asked by: Big Dog76
    These are a later model design with some improvements to prevent cracking.

    What spark plug should be run in these heads?

    Asked by: Chv1991
    The NGK tr55 are a good starting plug for most builds.
