I noticed what I think is a mold number or something on my head from a 88 N/A. Its a number 9. The redone head I am looking at has a 10. Are these revisions or N/A vs T heads. I was under the impression the only difference was the cams.

Hrm, couldn't find the old picture I took of the differences so I'll just have to post this pic:



Early style is on top, the divider comes much closer to the edge of the head and is a bit thinner. On the later style the divider sits very far back and is thicker.

I've flow benched both designs. The "big port" flows 10+ cfm more in the upper lift area .400 and higher. At that point it jumped way out on the other design. To take advantage of that you need a cam with a 11.8-12.5mm (about .400 and higher) lift. Our cams at best are .300-.350 stock and regrinds. There are larger lift cams but they come with a large price tag.

there are probably different numbers for each design... i work in casting and i know that some of the same parts have up to 5 different molds... all identical except for a number.. that way they can re-coat or repair them while still running some.. i dont know if honda motor mounts are the same as a toyota head but its possible.

I have a #11 off a Jan '90 Turbo that looks like the bottom one. From what I've heard they go up to 15. The #s are probably the batch # from the foundry would be my guess.
