Official Release

Edelbrock has expanded their line of E-Street cylinder heads to include an application for oval port big-block Chevy’s. This new 290cc head is designed for entry-level street performance and offers high quality at an affordable price.

Manufactured in the USA, these heads are made from A356 aluminum castings that are heat treated to T-6 specifications for superior strength and quality. Features include larger than stock (290cc) intake and (110cc) exhaust ports for improved engine efficiency; resulting in more horsepower, torque and increased mileage potential. Hardened spring cups help protect long-term wear along with the Heli-Coil® threaded inserts for exhaust flanges and rocker studs; these are the items that the lower-cost competitors leave out of their heads.
