Are you looking for big torque and horsepower number? Only AFR’s 220cc aluminum cylinder heads will provide you with exactly that. With the largest intake and exhaust runner volumes for our in-line Ford line up, these are the ultimate for NMRA Renegade or Hot Street classes. With lightweight 8mm 2.100 intake valves and 1.570 exhaust valves these heads move massive amounts of air. Combustion chamber volumes of 58cc or 69cc accompanied by 80cc exhaust ports which are raised .375 higher than stock. AFR’s new 220cc is the perfect choice for 347 through 427 CI windsors engines operating between 4500 to 8500 rpm. Our trademark 3/4” thick cylinder head deck makes them ideal for heavy nitrous or blower applications.


2.100 valves will require aftermarket pistons notched for valve clearance. (see footnotes here)
