The Edelbrock #11163 Ford Flatheads feature the original Edelbrock script logo design for Fords and Mercurys, and are casted at the Edelbrock Foundry in the USA of T-6 tempered A356 aluminum. The Edelbrock #1116 heads are rugged, ribbed internally and externally, with a large water capacity and excellent breathing characteristics. The Edelbrock #1116 Ford Flatheads High Lift/Large Chamber version feature a new "raised roof" combustion chamber design that is CNC machined for high lift cams and is perfect for reducing compression in supercharger applications or on low octane fuel. High Lift heads have increased valve clearance and increased flow capacity.
