Edelbrock 60049 heads. How fast are you running?


New member
Hello all, looking at build a 455. Want to be in the very low 12's. I'm wondering what sucess people have had with the Edelbrock cylinder heads? What kind of power they are making, suggestions, afterthoughts, ect. Would love to hear a few engine combos with these heads, and the results. My car is a 1970 skylark 12 bolt 3.55 gears, turbo 400. May switch to the 200r4. The stage 1 conversion cyl build is too close the the edelbrock price.:shield:

Best time for us was 10.24. That was with 100 shot of nitrous. In our 70 Skylark.

Motor itself produces about 580 hp NA. Hydraulic cam, pump gas.
464, 10.25 compression, SPX intake, 950 carb, custom ground cam.

We like the heads, and have had good luck with them. They were ported.
