    Also Yep... even the assembled ones have the stem clearance set at a "how can this work" lack of clearance. Reaming or honing is necessary.

    Thought they would have fixed that issue by now. Years ago. I mentioned to everyone about checking them before running them because all of mine needed to be reamed .0005. So much for running them OOTB.

        I didn't get Edelbrocks because of the issues I had consistently seen online. I went with Toth Performance CPPA a smaller operation who is all about Mopar Performance. My machinist hesitated to even take the job in until he saw the castings. After he was done, the very next day, he couldn't stop talking about how he loved the quality of the heads and how much better the casting and ports were vs the Edelbrocks. I definitely felt better about my choice.

        I'm surprised to read about your surprise and wish you luck in getting things in order for the up coming event you wanna get to. Nothing sucks like set back and surprises.

        Toth Performance CPPA heads.

        I posted a thread about the heads with some bare casting pics last year. It's titled Toth Performance Heads. sorry I couldn't figure out how to link the thread.

            I had a set of the BB heads and other than changing the springs and retainers they were perfectly usable out of the box. Ran great. But that was a few years ago and I wonder if Edelbrock has let QC slip in an effort to save money?
