    Those heads are pretty stout and shouldn't need anything but checking for your particular combo, I.E> correct spring pressure, valve installed height, coil bind for the cam your running.
    Are the heads new or used? What are you putting them on and whats the intended use?

    Which heads are they? BB-2, BB-2plus, etc etc. Alot of the Brodix heads say, or said, Big Brodies under the valve cover. Then, the next question, what is the application, and engine combo?, and how fast are you teying to run? THose few questions need to be answered, before we can give you more info

    If you can't run 9s without the bottle with a 512, Big Brodies, and 13.5:1, you're doing something majorly wrong.

    I agree :!: A lot of small blocks could power that car to the 9's big block will have no problem
