New Straub/Foxwell VEPR 355 BB Chev heads

New VEPR 355 BB Chevy conventional 24* from Straub Technologies. This port was developed for Troy LaCrone's 582 drag week engine last year but fits very well in the ProMaxx casting (shown) or AFR porter casting. 2.375 Ti intake x 1.85 steel ex valves, 50* valve job. Can upgrade to alloy seats and Ti ex valve. These will make some serious power. Made 1030 @ 6800 on pump gas 582 last year.

Chris,
Looks like Mr. Foxwell did a good job here. What were the final port cc's?

Thank you David. The originals poured 351cc and with some of the core shift in the Pro Maxx casting, I'm guessing about 353-355cc. 3.45 min cross section just past the pushrod.
