If new hi-riser heads become available, I suggest that the rear water passage be not drilled. This should help in stopping the cracking which has occurred. This would mean there would be a right and a left head. There is a stress riser right at the rear head bolt. We have shut the water passage off by welding. We hope this will eliminate the cracking which has occurred.

The BT HR heads cast 3 years ago fixed that already. The water passage is still there (both ends), just a lot smaller, and has much more "meat" around the outer head bolt tube... and into the the water, as well as a "bridge" across the top to the valve cover rail, plus the rocker pad is beefier all across the head and around all head bolt holes too. I only torque the head stud nuts to 95#, haven't had any issues at over 14 to 1 and/or over 1000 HP.
I am not sure what mods or upgrades they were talking about, maybe someone will chime in on that. Art usually does something new/different, every time he casts them. Always trying to improve.
I got "treed" by XR7... so nevermind. N/M
