Blue Thunder Racing Cylinder Heads For Small Block Ford

AlI Blue Thunder cylinder heads are cast at aircraft foundries using
Alcoa A356 aluminum, with a certified T-6 heat treat.  A stainless steel
shot blast finish, and high quality machined surfaces provide an
attractive finished product.

Blue Thunder cylinder heads are pressure checked to 60psi.  A .300”
port wall around ports for serious porting as desired.  A .650” thick
deck surface provides for structural integrity and future fly-cutting.  
Uses 14mm  3/4” reach 5/8 hex peanut style spark plug.

Features include Time Serts, (a threaded solid steel bushing (not a
spiral wire) to keep bolts from stripping out of the aluminum.), and steel
head bolt seats to prevent the head of the bolt from distorting into the
aluminum while fastening, along with 10 hardened flat washers.

These heads also come with partially drilled alcohol down nozzle
bosses cast into the cylinder head.

The 3.60 and 4.30 Blue Thunder cylinder heads have rocker stands
set-ups available from rocker arm manufacturers such as T&D.

CNC ported versions of both heads are available - - please inquire
