Default Pro Comp Heads

Anyone have any experience with Pro Comp aluminum small block Chevy heads ? I understand there were some early issues ? Have those been resolved ?
$599 for a pair assembled seems like a great deal with good components ?

Have you ever used them ? Or heard anything? Dart Iron Eagles are cheap.. are they junk as well ? This is a street motor for a 16 yr old kid.. not looking to run in the 7's.

go to search in the forum and type in procomp. there is threads & threads about them. I have put a pair of them on a all show no go show car, if you put them next to a dart head you will see the difference . you get what you pay for.

I would not use them out of box, I may use a bare set that my engine guy has put together but thats it. Do a search on the net and you will find lot and lots of people had issues.

One guy on this board has a set on his car and has pulled three studs out so far. Another guy on here got extremely pissed off when someone bashed them because he has had good luck with them....SO buyer beware. I would only use them on a street engine that would never be raced....the guy that had issues with the studs was also running a FLAT TAPPET CAM NOT A big roller, I believe.

Like you guys werent waiting for me? :lol:
Over 700 mechanical lift,You will need to ad a girdle to avoid possible problems,there were problems with the s/b stuff when they first came out,I had my bare castings race prepped with good components and am very happy with mine seeing 6800 rpm daily,I did infact split a comp cam gold rocker that was brand new due to spring pressure and a cold backfire,hmmm,maybe I should say bad things about them? naa,I will pass as I know how the aftermarket (racing) stuff [email protected]#$5 happens.
