Edelbrock RPM Xtreme™ Cylinder Heads for Small Block Ford
+21 HP / +13 Ft/Lbs. of Torque over the Competition!

TORRANCE, CA - Edelbrock RPM Xtreme series cylinder heads for S/B Ford, #51259, are CNC ported where it counts for maximum air flow ultimate performance. Engineered and manufactured using the best combination of as-cast port design and CNC technology, RPM Xtreme heads are CNC ported in the critical areas (combustion chambers, intake entry, exhaust exit and intake/exhaust bowls) for improved air flow and overall performance. RPM Xtreme heads are ideal for high-performance street and entry-level race applications. These heads are sold complete with high-quality conical (beehive) springs, 8mm stem stainless steel valves, and include heli-coil inserts in the exhaust flange and rocker stud bosses.

Dyno testing on a stock 404 CID Windsor engine with the addition of Edelbrock RPM Xtreme Series heads #51259, Edelbrock RPM intake manifold #7181, roller cam (.576"/.600" lift with 242/248 duration @ .050) and Edelbrock 800cfm carburetor #1412 resulted in an impressive 508 horsepower @ 6500 rpm and 504 ft./lbs. of torque @ 4400 rpm - that's 21-horsepower and 13 ft/lbs of torque increase over a competitors fully CNC ported head!

All Edelbrock cylinder heads are cast and machined in Edelbrock's own California facilities for absolute consistency and quality control. Available for now for small-block Ford, GM LT4 & LS-Series and coming soon for small-block and big-block Chevy, and big-block Chrysler.
