Wonder if they are AMC based casting or someone new? Hope the quality is decent.

Link didn't show a picture, only text.

Great news for us sticking with the Type IV.

Don't see it on their website yet but everything else looks like it's AMC based heads.

That is a good deal, but it is bare no guides and I bet no seats, so you will have to buy quality seats, valves, guides, springs, retainers, keepers and pay for the machine work.
I wish they showed a pic of the chambers.

I wonder if there AMC or a new casting. I'm still deciding if I'm going 2.2 4 cylinder or just go 3.0 or 3.2 . I need to check with head porter to see if they know about these.

So tempting to buy a set with that 15% off discount they are offering.

I got that email too! I don't believe these heads have the 2.0 spark plug location. If they did I think they'd sell a lot of them.

I'll order a set and see what happens when they hit 500F head temps.
In the past they offered modified AMC castings, but I wouldn't doubt they've k locked them off in China, like everything else.

Pretty sure they're not Spanish AMC's at that price. I buy AMC 2.0 bus heads by the pallet from a cozy importer and I can't get that price.

I'm going to get a pair. I'll know what I'm dealing with when I machine them and weld them.

It would be great if they're quality castings like the AMC's, which are very good castings of a durable alloy, despite the crappy parts and rough casting details in the ports.

With China it's a crap shoot. Some good some awful.

From a head porter perspective, on a set of non stock heads, what do you keep if you're switching to bigger valves, and better springs?

A few type 1 head porters have used the AA501 casting with success. Maybe using the same foundry for the type 4?

Not sure if I undertand the question, but if you mean what parts from the amc heads do I keep the answer is none. Seats, guides, valves, springs and retainers all go to scrap.

I would hate to see my heads at 500f

Sounds like a good deal for a new casting!

That's what I meant to ask. Bare casting preferred.

I'm interested to see how these casting work out. Having a second source with spark plug already relocated should help. I see vendors charging $250-400 to relocate to 2.0 location.

So who has placed an order for these?

Anyone want to order an extra one or two and swap for machining time? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) Couldn't hurt to ask, hahaha
