Butler Performance CUSTOM BUILDS OUR HEADS TO ORDER.    We slot the pushrod holes in all our Edelbrock heads to clear 1.65 rockers, and include a detailed blueprint and build sheet as well as a flowchart- all for no extra charge.     All BPI Edelbrock  heads can be upgraded with roller springs, titanium retainers, milling, etc. for additional price.

NOTE:
" When using a Pontiac 350 block, 1.66" exhaust valves are required. Also, the top of each cylinder bore may need additional notching to clear higher lift cams- this must be checked before installation
