case meets SFI 4.1 specs, so you won't need to run a shield
or blanket. Accepts OEM pans and extension housings. CNC-machined
minimum-depth valve body passages result in extremely fast
transbrake releases and quicker shifts. Learn more in the

introduced their new BP SR 20 cylinder head at PRI. The
SR 20 is at the cutting edge of conventional big block
Chevy compatible technology.
SR 20 utilizes a .500” raised 440 cc intake port
with a 2.400 intake valve; this head flows 507 cfm. The
exhaust port flows 335 cfm through only a 1.800 valve.
To allow for the newly designed 95 cc combustion chamber,
the intake valve angle of this head has been rolled to
20 degrees. This
head requires pistons, valve covers, head studs, shaft
rockers, and an intake manifold designed specifically
for the SR 20.
