Increased Power for Increased Boost Applications
Edelbrock Duramax Diesel Cylinder Heads are the first performance-oriented diesel head created by Edelbrock specifically for the diesel engine market.
Crafted from A356 aluminum alloy, these diesel heads are heat and pressure-treated to increase strength and fatigue properties by reducing the porosity of the metal. A Hot Isostatic Process (HIP) heats raw aluminum castings then compresses the casting to remove any trapped gases and internal imperfections. The end result is a cylinder head with increased metal hardness as well as high tensile and compressive strength. The HIP process greatly increases performance and service life while reducing the likelihood of failure in extreme operating environments.
Compared to the factory heads these replace, Edelbrock Duramax Diesel Cylinder Heads have been reengineered to deliver an increase in power and torque. Intake and exhaust runners are designed with improved flow and swirl characteristics. A raised rocker valley adds additional water volume to the head. Extra-thick deck and port wall material allow for aggressive custom porting while retaining superior deck strength.
These heads are a direct bolt-on replacement for stock heads and are compatible with all stock Duramax valvetrain components as well as factory glow plugs, fuel injectors, valve covers and water crossover. All heads come pre-assembled and are ready to run out of the box. Edelbrock Duramax Diesel Cylinder Heads are 50-State legal with E.O. D-215-102.
