BBC Patriot heads - anyone running them?

Postby warrior-p » Mon Feb 14, 2011 8:57 pm

Was curious if anyone was running the Patriot heads fro a bbc? THe airflow on them seem to match the Brodrix BB-2 plus heads. The links show the flow rates.

Warrior--I think Felber was using Patriot heads on some of his 540s and 572s. You might call and ask him about them.

I did not mean to imply that he uses them straight out of the box, but he would be able to give you the skinny on them.
