Performance Engine Heads

Your engine head, also known as a cylinder head is a key component for your vehicle . Engine heads closes of the top of your cylinder block, forming the combustion chamber. The head can also be where valves, spark plugs, and fuel injectors are found. A Performance Engine head is a key component when building your motor. An Engine head works in combination with the camshafts, induction and exhaust. Sport Compact Warehouse is your premier source for Performance Engine Heads. You will find we have a large selection of cylinder heads made in both Aluminum & Cast Iron. Aluminum Engine Heads will be much lighter, and dissipate heat much better. When the heat is dissipated better, which may allow for a higher compression ratio without worrying of possible detonation. Cast Iron Engine Heads take longer to heat up, which means they will take longer to cool down. Cast Iron is generally more cost efficient as well.

Things to keep in mind when you’re looking for a Performance Engine Block are compression ratios, engine displacement, and your target horsepower. Another thing be mindful of is what you plan on doing with your vehicle . If your looking to track your vehicle it will have different needs then someone who is looking to just gain a few more HP on their daily. We highly recommend you speak to one of our experienced representatives so we can help you make a more informative decision.

In an internal combustion engine, the cylinder head (often informally abbreviated to just head) sits above the cylinders on top of the cylinder block. It closes in the top of the cylinder, forming the combustion chamber. This joint is sealed by a head gasket. In most engines, the head also provides space for the passages that feed air and fuel to the cylinder, and that allow the exhaust to escape. The head can also be a place to mount the valves, spark plugs, and fuel injectors.

The number of cylinder heads in an engine is a function of the engine configuration. Almost all inline (straight) engines today use a single cylinder head that serves all the cylinders. A V (or Vee) engine has two cylinder heads, one for each cylinder bank of the 'V'. For a few compact 'narrow-angle' V engines, such as the Volkswagen VR6, the angle between the cylinder banks is so narrow that it uses a single head spanning the two banks. A flat engine (basically a V engine, where the angle between the cylinder banks is now 180°) has two heads. Most radial engines have one head for each cylinder, although this is usually of the monobloc form wherein the head is made as an integral part of the cylinder. This is also common for motorcycles, and such head/cylinder components are referred to as barrels.
