I had the springs retainers upgraded to tool steel on mine. Lighter than the standard but not as expensive as titanium.

Guess I should read more carefully-lol.Those are ported to 305 cfm? Looks like nice work- the rough surface should keep port velocities up. I noticed you had KRE's too, but my heads are also coming from SD too so the work should be comparable.

Hi guys,
I finally paid off my paid off my E-heads, and got the first head from SD a few days ago (split shipment- the other one should arrive next week). I have to say it was well worth the wait and money spent.

He did HIS first set of closed chamber E-heads opened to 89 cc's for me. 342 cfrm and stock pushrod location.

With a 535, hydraulic roller of my own design, and pump gas ran a 9.70@142 right out of the trailer, shifting @ 6,000 rpm and weighing 3450lbs. Awesome heads.
**** Then took the hyd roller out and put another custom profile solid roller in the same engine. 9.60's and same tune up as before needing more tune. Had to slow the car down to run a 6.50 1/8th mile index class and ran a 6.48 (10.18 1/4) on just the front side of a 1200 cfm Dominator carb.
**** 2 BBL ****
I know 9.50's (1/4) and quicker were there but forced to go another direction before I could TUNE it out.


The man does build a Killer set of heads for the money. Hard to do that work for that price. Easier just to buy them outright and save the time and physical energy for something else.

Some pics of the new SD E-heads:





I'm going with SD's Road Paver with a 112 LSA- now the question I'm asking is if it's worth upgrading to solid roller lifters. It seems like most running hydraulic roller lifters end up going to HIPPOs later.

Very long and very informative thread on PY. In summary, the new Comp Hyd roller lifters seem to have cured the problems. Dave @ SD even mentioned this in that very thread.

The original lifter was an 857, the replacement was an 857s. Now the "s" has been dropped and it is back to the 857. Some guys mentioned that it is best to buy from a high volume dealer so you can be sure you don't get an old one.

What cubic inch is your combo?

I will argue that point and ran a hyd roller bigger then anyone out there with 150 seat & 410 lbs open pressure without one issue. .

9.70's on pump gas with a hyd roller and 3460lbs. street legal.

in the mid to high 260's @.050 with .650 lift.

Those 9.70's N/A was out of the trailer and never got to really tune it faster. Plus completely stock type suspension with a glide. ;0

Top vid is the 9.70 pass with engine info.
