K-Fab Head
« on: March 26, 2011, 02:38:42 PM »
Can you still get a K-Fab head? Or does anybody else make one?  I live at 6000 ft elevation aprox and need to bring the compression up. Any sujestions?  Thanks.

K-fab doesn't make heads anymore....I doubt you find one...I guy by the name of speedchaser sells some on e-bay but I don't think they raise compression very much...How much are you looking to raise it? You can have it milled for around $100...I wouldn't go over 165-170 psi or you will have to run race gas....If you are only wanting to raise it 10 psi or so,get a stock 3 layer head gasket and remove 1 of the layers...

I read that K-fab heads had interchangeable domes to change the compression.  That was more what I was looking for.  Does speedchacer have other domes or can he make a custom one?  And how do I get a hold of him?  If I cant find one I will have my head milled and/or rechambered.  I was trying to bring it up to 160-165 at 6000 ft elevation.  Who would you recomend for the machine work?

The speedchaser heads do have interchangeable domes....He was advertising them on e-bay a while back but not sure if he has made anymore or not....You may also contact hillside honda...He was making some at one time....
ATV Racing in Phoenix http://www.atvracing1.com is the most notable for head machining and re-surfaceing.....

move to a lower elevation and your compression will go up...
The altitude will play a big role in the number you see!

MAS - No, I no longer make the heads for the Pilot.  I made about half a dozen or so a few years back, but that was it.

Sorry.
