ProComp makes a set of closed chamber heads, but i wouldn't recommend them for more than 200 lbs valve seat pressure. They come with 2.250 int and 1.880 exh valve seats. They will make over 500 hp with a .600 lift cam with the right intake,carb, and headers. Being a procomp dealer i've sold a few sets of these heads, but not for racing, also they only come on ovel port intake. and they are cheap.

JMO

Zip.

Sorry i was wrong ProComp does not make a closed chamber head.

UH'OH Caveman, i made a mistake, the PC's are not closed chamber, sorry my mistake. I think Dart makes a set of closed chamber, round int. runner and i think my friend has a set of them, he's going to take a look at them and call me back in a couple hrs.
Sorry for misleading you on the PC's.

There's lot's of closed chamber heads listed on Ebay for sale, most are large ovel intake runners. I ran a set of these heads in the mid 80's on a 427 in a 3500 lb Chevelle and it ran low 11's. Here is a few of the listings.
