Go with the airflow

Chevrolet Performance cylinders are tested for excellence for durable performance on street or strip.

LS FAMILY PRODUCTION AND C5R ALUMINUM CYLINDER HEADS

Great cylinder-head airflow has been a key enabler of the LS-Series’ exceptional performance. Chevrolet Performance delivers those power-building attributes to you with a range of production-style aluminum heads — from the LS6 heads for smaller-displacement engines to LS7 style heads for 427-inch-and-larger combinations, our aluminum heads benefit from Chevrolet Performance’s extensive research and development program, providing airflow.
