    Don't know if PBM Strike Force heads are the same as Pro Comp. But they're Chinese and the valve guide ended up being very badly worn in two thousand miles. I got rid of them and got a set of Dart Pro 1's. With out changing anything else, I went from 457 HP to 485 HP.
    The older I get the more dangerous I am !!!!!

    The only replacement for cubic inches, is rectangular dollar$$$$$$$$$

    An engine builder near me found out the same thing on a small block went from Procomp to AFR saw a 40 horse gain on the dyno but the heads flow decent.
