Re: Big Boys Heads

aren't the Rocket heads kind of a mirror image? That is they have a deeper trough on the exhaust side.

Re: Are these rotators?

are the valve springs different for intake and exhaust? Looks a little like Isky springs on the exhaust with the rotators. I believe they are shorter and would work with the rotators.
