Default The Grond Chronicles : A LOT of Head for the New Year [pics]

New Years present came in today !! Brand new GM LQ9 72cc heads - perfect for forced induction!!

The LQ9s (317 casting) are identical to Z06 heads except they have 210cc intake runners and 72cc combustion chambers for low compression.
