Big block heads

Do most big block heads have rocker arm studs protruding into the intake port the slightest bit?

Re: Big block heads

it isn't anything major. Just the tip of it sticks in. I just assumed that was a HUGE airflow issue.

Re: Big block heads

Most studs don't stick into the port but the hole is visible. The new Chinese counterfeit junk knock-offs have helicoils that stick 1/4" into the ports - right in the ceiling where they have the most affect on flow. Junk, IMHO.

Re: Big block heads

Okay, I have a set of Brodix heads where a thread of the heli-coil is visible. Should I do something about it?
