May 2023 Updates, Core Availability, & LT1's

I'm a low volume shop with a unique focus on making available to anyone the extreme level of attention to detail, consistency in machining, and performance potential otherwise only found in higher end professional racing builds.  As such, I generally maintain at least a month backlog & try to group similar jobs as I work between various types of heads.  Be sure to read my Core Policies & Packing Tips before sending in heads!

I'm available via Email.  E-mail Me
You can also text my Google Voice #:  704-918-5526
I do not accept walk-in's etc., as I often work from other locations.

Available Cores as of 5/6/23:  GM LS7, Finished 280cc GM LS7, 6-Bolt Brodix LS7's, 243/799's, Finished 226cc & 232cc 243's.  GM LS3, LSA, & LS9's.  TFS & Dart casting based options. 

Notes regarding work:
  • LS7's are almost always in process as they make up a large proportion of my work.
  • I often have available LS7 cores to shorten wait times.  However, I prefer to have your LS7 cores arrive when I am ready to ship.
    This is to 1. Use your Ti intake valves in the build if possible, and 2. to avoid processing core charges & refunds.

  • I am NOT currently doing the welded up HCR versions of LS heads at the moment. (706's, 219cc HCR, 317 --> 243 Conversion)
  • Most LSx Full CNC Porting + all other machining, detail work, & labor is $1795-1995.  I will not compromise the
    level of my product to meet a price point.  I am typically adding more detail work to ensure it remains a good value.
  • Ported Manifolds & Cams are an option only when we're also doing a set of heads for you at the same time.

  • I am accepting more & more work for other companies, as it lessens my C.S. load.
  • This includes Design, Machining, CNC Programming, & Consultation regarding production.
  • I do offer CNC Porting Only for Engine Builders at any level of detail. Your design or mine.
  • I work with most any platform using Aluminum heads - motorcycles, exotics, powersports, marine, etc.

  • Gen 2 LT1's You guys are so persistent, that I am currently pricing out updated options for you.
  • TFS 21deg Porter casting based heads - castings are a few months out, deposit required, $3995.
  • 200cc GM work - Updating component options.  Classic Configuration Including guide work $2995.
  • Anticipate $2500-4500 depending on options & casting.  E-mail Me if you can't live without your LT1.

    If you know you want CNC work, you are welcome to get your heads inbound & shoot us an email at Sales @ with info on what you're sending in, your project, goals, tracking #'s, your return shipping address, etc.  With your heads in hand we can then get them in line for work, and invoice you once we have a chance to inspect them during prep for CNC work.  If you have blown up, modified, or damaged cores, please wait until we can respond via email.

    Please be sure the name you use in your email is written on the box & put a note inside with your name, email, etc!

    Be sure to read our Core Policies & Packing Tips before sending in heads!  It may be long, but it's important to know what is & isn't acceptable for work.  When possible we want to perform work on your castings, but we do try to keep a limited # of cores on hand for swaps now.  If you have extra sets of LSx or DI-LTx in undamaged/unmodified condition, we'll occasionally accept those as partial payment for your CNC work and/or buy them outright.

    Keep in mind, some of our shops / builders like Black Label Tuning,Complete Street Performance, Heintz Racing, PCM of NC, SS LSX Tuning, Top Gear Motorsports etc. often have heads already available or currently in process.  If you are working with an engine builder or shop, we're happy to do what we can to coordinate schedules with them.  We are always looking for competent and trustworthy installers we can send customers to for a turnkey experience.  If your shop wants to work with us, email us at Resale @

    All cylinder heads, payments, parts, free samples, treats for the guys, etc. should be sent to:
