I shouldn't post this, but I did it and it's mine to share.

Scanned image of a 172cc Super Stock port. Edelbrock casting. Fully reworked. The thing that get's me going is the SSR. Notice it...

These engines are 355-358cid. They make 530-550tq and 660-680hp depending on combo and year.

This port has a 1.60in² MIN.. 2.02 valve.

The engines alone are example of efficiency.

Stock and true Super Stock guys are unbelievable. I ran SS Modified. And was just barely respectable. I’ll be honest, never had the brains to run either.

I saw some SS Hemi heads like 14 years ago. Was amazed then how much the port had been moved with bronze filler. Can't image what there doing today. Head technology is amazing today. Good job to those still get'n after it. Today I'm mostly involved with blower engine. Much different deal. But still love the naturally aspirated engine stuff.

Still braze the iron heads. But it's a nightmare when done. Things move around.

Yes RPM head that cost more and has a NHRA logo on it. Most are 10-1 and some of the LT combos are closer to 11-1.

My factory 041 super stock heads look just like that. Oval port with lots of epoxy in the bottom. Exhaust is brazed up to make a raised D port. Mine are 165 cc intake 65 cc exhaust. Mine is a 327 combo and makes about 600. My stuff is a little old school though.
Chads work is beautiful.
600 hp out of that combo, impressive.
