Advanced Induction Cylinder Head Development
Ai GM 241 LS1 Performance Rebuild Cylinder Head Package

Our Performance Rebuild suite of inspection and machine work is a great option for the value minded.  Even in as cast form the GM LS cathedral castings are capable of producing impressive power levels.  If you are building a budget setup, we can bring the factory head back into better than new condition, and properly install an aftermarket spring setup appropriate for your build.  Our precision valve grinding and CNC'd valve jobs are a great way to pick up some power and ensure your heads are ready to go for tens of thousands of miles.

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:

Note: GM heads often show so little guide wear that they do not need to be replaced.  In the event they do require attention due to wear or your application, we have several options.  GM OEM valves are high quality, durable, and lightweight.  Most applications do not need an aftermarket valve.
