Advanced Induction Cylinder Head Development
100% CNC'd 280cc GM LS7 Cylinder Head Package

The CNC'd GM LS7 head is adequate for producing average power straight from the factory.  However, it is an entry level part that suffers from the relative inconsistency of large scale mass production.  Our latest offering is an excellent option for someone who already owns the CNC'd GM LS7 cylinder head.  Without a great deal of investment we are able to apply a superior port design.  Significantly increased performance coupled with vastly superior finish and consistency make this a phenomenally attractive piece for high end builders.  We can accommodate any application from utilizing factory GM components to all out road or drag race packages.  From 600 rwhp daily drivers to 700 rwhp race engines, this is a versatile and proven performer.

Pricing is for work applied to a pair (2) of cylinder head castings and components YOU supply unless otherwise noted.  We are happy to build your heads with whichever spring kit, valve, etc. you would like.

Labor and Component Options:

Suggested Setup - Full Bronze Guides + an appropriate Exhaust Valve & spring setup for your given application. Typically, the Manley "Race Series" for NA or mild power adder apps.  High EGT "Severe Duty," or Inconel, for frequent n2o use, turbo, & marine apps.  Hollow Ferrea option for aggressive NA, or to increase over-rev safety margin.  Regarding spring options, the common BTR spring kit with Ti retainers is a great entry level option.  The Manley setups are a little nicer, and PSI's are the best spring available.  Our 'Ultimate HR Kit' is easily the nicest, lightest option, using my lightweight tool steel retainer, top-lock style fully machined & hardened locks, and either new OE GM seal/locators, or separate hardened locators & seals.  Other setups are available for racier applications (e.g. PSI duals & Xceldyne components, Jesel rocker systems, etc.).  All of these will be set up ideally to ensure you maximize the potential that any given components offer.
