    PCE281.1761 - Speedmaster Bare Cylinder Heads is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Decent head Both boxes delivered in were pretty bad condition. Check part over. Also 1.6 exhaust valves don't fit. They are to big, I used 1.5 and did a leak down test.They were good. Overall good quality, I haven't started the engine yet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice looking heads Bought heads for replacement of stock heads because I would have about the same amount in old heads after machine work. Read a lot of bad reviews but they look fine and this is only a street engine, not a full blown race engine. Only found one small spot that will need a little attention in one exhaust port. Bottom line I see nothing wrong with Pro Comp or Speedway heads for a street engine and they are going on a restoration I`m doing and the cast iron heads fit the build just fine.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for! My customer ordered a pair of these because he couldn't wait months for the backordered Darts that he wanted. These are not made for 1.6" exhaust, but only 1.5". Jeg's made good on that but the hardened seats are too small to recut that big so I had to use 1.55" valves. Ports are pretty crude and should be gone over. Understand that any work on these voids the warranty. These heavy heads were shipped in very thin cardboard boxes that were pretty beat up. When opened there were deep gouges on the edges (no problem) of the deck surface and across the valve cover rail (problem). That I fixed with epoxy. I'm not sure if the damage was from the factory or shipping but we decided to work with what we had instead of returning for more of the same. Pros - inexpensive, available. Cons - heavy, crude, damaged, not as advertised.
