    Pontiac Performer RPM CNC Cylinder Heads

    Performer RPM CNC Cylinder Heads have the same specifications as the popular Performer RPM cylinder heads for 389-455 Pontiac engines, but feature a CNC machined combustion chamber. The CNC machined chamber results in a consistent and precise chamber for improved flow performance. Performer RPM CNC cylinder heads are available in two chamber sizes. The 87cc chamber version is ideal for 9.5:1 engines and will deliver excellent street performance on low octane fuel. Performer RPM CNC cylinder heads with 72cc chambers are best for higher compression engines. Both are patterned after the same port flange configuration as the 1969-1970 Ram-Air IV Pontiac Cylinder Head.
