Advanced Induction Cylinder Head Development
Ai 218cc CNC'd GM 243 LS2/LS6 Cylinder Head Package

GM's #243 casting is a great cathedral head that has phenomenal potential with the right work applied.  Our 218cc CNC work is a good choice for guys who would like a bit more gain than our Performance Rebuild, but are not inclined to port the casting to its potential.  This additional gain is attained via fully CNC porting the exhaust runners, and CNC machining the valve seat area of the intake port.  The remainder of the intake port, and the combustion chamber are left as cast.  Typical gains for our CNC work are in the 20-30rwhp SAE range over the as cast 243.

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.
