THE READ FOR SPEED by Ned Erkman
CHAPTER 3


The cylinder head is the most important component for producing power in a high performance engine and the decisive factor for determining the maximum performance capability of an engine.

Cylinder heads are also the most complicated engine components to properly modify for efficient performance increases and, usually, the most expensive to purchase and upgrade.

Since the cylinder head is vital to engine performance, and a costly proposition for an engine upgrade, a comprehensive understanding of cylinder heads can assist in making good choices about the options that are available.

The performance value of cylinder heads is evident with a thorough understanding of how a high performance engine functions. Since a high performance engine operates as an internal combustion engine, which produces power by combusting air and fuel, the volume of air and fuel that is consumed directly determines the amount of power produced.
