I'd like to buy a bare set when available. My machinist is very familiar with aluminum heads.

Any known release date?

It was way back at PRI in December that I talked to them about it. They still had to do the preproduction testing so they didn't know.

Great to see some progress in this department. In regards to the aluminum heads, do you think there would be issues with head gaskets? The 6.0/6.4 are 4 bolt per cylinder configuration. I believe the other engines utilizing aluminum heads are 5 bolt per cylinder.

I wonder if there would be head gasket issues. Aluminum's material properties are more flexible than Steel. For example, Aluminum's modulus of elasticity is only 1/3 that of steel.

Just food for thought... I'd love to see this work - WE NEED HEADS!

Price point on the Aluminum won't be to terrible either from what the rep was saying at PRI. Hoping to see some good flow numbers as well! I think they picked up around 30-40CFM just from going to aluminum.

That may help. But I think there's a deformity aspect that may be present.

I assume the dimensions of the heads will be the same as the steel versions. Thus, you can't compensate with more material for the lack of rigidity.

Like I said before, just thinking out loud... I am by no means an expert in cylinder head design...
