We have expanded our Freedom Series heads to include our newest 225cc runner. To achieve the best flowing cylinder heads we perform our 2.08"/1.60" 5 angle valve job, hand blend the valve bowl area, and mill to exact tolerences. To this we add only the highest quality EV8 2.08"/1.60" stainless valves, .575" lift (hyd. flat tappet) springs, steel retainers, 3/8" studs, bronze guides, and guideplates. These heads are a great addition to engine builds that are 383 and larger.

*Sold as Pair.

My engine is a 1978 model 400 c.i., bored .030 to 406 c.i... 10.0 -1 flat top forged pistons... My question is are this applicable to my engine and what modifications are their if I use them? What pushrod size? What intake, carburator, timing, rocker arms, or any other advice would be helpful?
