White or white cylinder heads

I was looking online for cylinder heads and white performance and skip white pop up. Are they one in the same or different? There is two different sites and they are both located in Kingsport Tn.. Is one company a rip off of the other?

Re: White or white cylinder heads

Mostly just Chinese made knockoff parts. I'd avoid them like the plague... but some people like 'em.

Re: White or white cylinder heads

Gary, what do you think of blue print cylinder heads? I'm looking cause the rpm cylinder heads I have crapped out on me after only 25,000 miles.. they are 6089 heads with the 170 cc intake runners. For the price the machine shop wants to do the heads over I'm better off buying new heads and who can beat the prices of these promaxx, blue print and etc heads...

Re: White or white cylinder heads

What's wrong with the Performer RPM heads? Those and AFR used to be our go-to heads at a shop I worked at several years ago. I don't remember getting any complaints about them.

BTW, no way would I buy anything from the vendor you mentioned above.

An absolute DITTO here.
What is it your machinist is saying is wrong with the RPM heads? Did you drop a valve and damage one, or ??????

Re: White or white cylinder heads

The guides are bad. He says he replaces all the valves and the rest of the hardware when he does this job(450.00 a head).. I like the edelbrock heads but was looking for alittle more volume in the intake cc ports. Was also thinking of going with the blueprint 195cc heads cause that's will be readily available then the machine shop.. Any ideas on these?

Re: White or white cylinder heads

unless there has been a valve job or 2 already done on the stainless valves, and unless the stems were horribly scored,,, I think you need a new head shop.

No the Edelbrock heads are not a AFR or Brodix, but at $900 to do a valve job??? your $200 from a new set of heads. I'll be happy to give you the $200 for them as is, sight unseen!
