Whatever your name is keep in mind it shortens to the one key word or acronym. I like Rite Heads. As in, "yea, I have a set of the Rite heads on this engine." Its simple, its memorable, it advertises for itself.

TWilkes is balancing getting the new Canfields machined and runing his regular business. They're in the works, just going to take some time. It'll be worth the wait.

Re: Is Canfield Heads out of business?

In case the next month comes & goes w/no word,

might want to start researching here & elsewhere

on the Profiler head for your 496.


Very nice option for you to consider.

I'd suggest getting a set of Profilers and taking a look at them in bare stage. The last 2 sets I got for customer has cost me most of my A$$.

Why is it we never have time or money to do it the right way in the beginning but we always have time and money to do it over again?

What does that mean? Take look at them and you won't be happy ?

I have seen pictures of the 290cc and it looks good especially for the price. I just physically looked over a set of the Sniper X 375cc heads and they are also nice for a different application.

I always appreciate your input and experience.

Happy New Year !!!!

Care to explain a little more in detail. I have a Customer considering that same head for his 496 BB Chevy. What should we know, send me a P.M.
