You guys have seen the posts on my big valve heads. Most have been for my version 1 heads. These have 1.52" intake valves and 1.36" exhaust valves. These latest are my Tribute heads in honor of Bill Thomas.
I've made numerous sets using 102 heads, 110 heads, 95 heads and LM turbo heads. Right now I am working on a pair of 63 turbo heads which are getting this treatment. I'll cut the seat registers on these today.
Here are a few pictures of a pair of Tribute 102 heads I built. Can't remember which car these went onto. These pictures show the heads with the original small valves slipped into the guides. Just to show the valve head size difference. The 3rd picture shows the original valves in the foreground and the 140 valves to be installed in the background.

I love the work you do! These heads and a tweaked cam (and maybe EFI for drivability) and you've "earned" your HP and torque!
