        Seem to be working good, but won’t really be able to tell until I get the new build tuned in. Would have given it a better rating if I didn’t have so much trouble with finding the proper gaskets. Which, by the way, American Muscle doesn’t carry!

      With the combination of these heads and a b303 cam would i need to change my stock pushrod length and my 1.6 rockers?

      • The Edelbrock Performer Cylinder Head will use stud mount rockers and will not accept pedestal mount rockers like those used for stock heads. Pushrod length should be checked when changing heads, most customers do not require a change in pushrod length however due to production tolerances, we have seen some who did require a different length pushrod.

      What's the best spark plug to use

      • We would need a little more information regarding your build to possibly suggest the best spark plugs for your individual use. The best spark plug for your motor depends on what other modifications you have. There are spark plugs that are best used with forced induction motors or different pugs if you are planning on using nitrous for example. I suggest contacting us so that we can better assist you!
