I would say the seller of those heads must not be real proud of them. He did not list any flow figures on them at all. If you want to get a new product out you better brag them up a bit and show proof to back it up. Until I saw a test on them I would stay away.

Those are from some outfit from "down under," Pro Topline. Here's some more reading for you: http://www.protopline.com/. Here's one of their elves in his hollow tree, pouring a set just for you:

The ones on eBay are supposed to be Victor Jr. equivalents, which are generally not recommended for a small street engine.

As a former foundry worker...(have the scars to prove it, too)...I would refuse to buy just based on that picture alone.

Good Lord.

Actually, I think it's more likely those are Chinese knockoffs of the Vic Jr. Lot of those floating around these days.

If someone does have the Pro Toplines, they're likely to let it be known. It's a good head. :)

That guy has another auction where he names the PT heads.

Joe's right. I have a set of ProTopline 180's and the ones in the first add are NOT PT's. Look closely at the stud bosses under the guide plates. Knock off's are square, PT's are rounded. PT's are very good heads IMO, and as cast, outflow AFR's. FYI, They're also a Dart style head meaning the plugs are different size and are angled differently than stock iron heads. On my SBF Stroker, that meant changing from Tri-Y’s to a Dart compatible header.
