- Premium alloy: Dart aluminum heads are cast from virgin 355-T61 aerospace alloy for superior strength and integrity.

- Shallow combustion chamber design improves combustion and allows use of larger valves for improved air flow.

- Copper beryllium seats are available with stainless steel or titanium valves.

- Valve seats will accommodate up to 2.230" intake valves and 1.550" exhaust valves to maximize flow.

- Spark plugs are shifted toward bore centerline to enhance flame travel and reduce spark plug advance requirement.

- Refined intake port design reduces turbulence and improves air/fuel flow.

- Tall short side radius and deep valve bowl enhance low lift flow.

- Water passages between exhaust ports improve cooling and prevent "hot spots" that can cause head gasket failure.

- Gasketed 3/4" reach spark plugs offer widest selection of heat ranges.

- Little Chief heads require modified lifter locations in the block. Dart can supply Little Chief ready engine blocks on request.

- All cylinder heads sold individually.
