Default Patriot Heads? 400 sbc on a budget.

Are theses patriot heads any good? Better than procomp? Im looking to build a low budget 400 drag racing only motor. Still stock rods and pistons, Any suggestions? on everything. Its going in a 95 s15. tubbed Reg cab shortbed. Thanx.

These heads are a much better choice.

Carl, i like those heads, hadn't seen them before. The flow #'s are better out of the box than Brodix Track 1's, CNC ported by Brodix. Looks like they could be a good blower motor head in the solid version also. Thanks for posting them.

I have been looking at them for quite a while and considering them on some of the up coming builds.

I did a 350 budget engine & chose to use patriot heads over the procomps because they were a better looking casting, although both are cast in China I believe. I bought them bare & added my valves etc that I already had. overall I am happy with them.

I'd like to see a set of patriots on my flow bench. Looking at pictures I can find on the web, I'm just not seeing 295CFM. Overall port design leads me to believe they would be right around 260 out of the box.

I think you're right. ProComp list their 210 runner @ 254 int. @ 700 lift.

What do you want to spend on a set of heads.
AFR heads are an awesome head out of the box..
Dart and RHS are a good strong second.
