"I want to give a huge thanks to Vin Borbone at Vintage Performance! Your level of engineering capability, attention to detail and professionalism is second to none. I'm confident that your custom designed and technologically advanced cylinder heads are going to provide the edge I need to break national records with my Kawasaki H2 750 race bike! Thanks for your amazing support!!!

These heads ROCK!!! I tested a set the past 2 weekends at the last 2 AHRMA races of the year at Talladega and Barber. The heads I had before were a VERY good design and had won me dozens of championships, so all of us were skeptical of there would be any noticeable improvements because the heads I had before were already so good.
When I got the track, it was obvious right from the very first session that the bike had a nice increase in powerband width with it coming on the pipe about 200rpm earlier and also having about 300 rpm more over rev than it used to have.
I would like to thank Vin Borbone at Vintage Performance for all his help with improving the engine performance of my RD-400 road racer when we installed a set of VP billet heads . First I am very impressed with Vins years of experience and his knowledge of port timing , compression ratios, dowel pinning and what combinations work to make power. Second, the fit and finish of these heads are beautiful and very high quality. Third , These heads work great, the engine runs cleaner and even sounds better but mostly the performance has improved over the entire RPM range and pulls better on top.I would recommend VP heads to anyone looking to improve engine performance . A set of these heads will be on my next RD project
