Dave Mackie Harley-Davidson Hi-Flow Heads
Complete Head Porting and Contouring Services
It's difficult to photograph our special shapes and contours. We have tried to show
you samples of the finished product and let you judge for yourself. What we strive for
is maximum air flow and highest possible velocity. Velocity is the key to efficient
fuel atomization and "ram" effect which leads to maximum power and economy. This is
especially important in Twin-Cam and Evolution heads. When modifying Twin-Cam or Evolution
heads we retain the integrity of the original design while increasing both flow capacity
and velocity, and improving atomization and ram effect. Great care is taken in the fitting
of guides into all types of heads. Each guide is Sunnen-honed to assure that the bore is true
from end to end and precisely fitted for valve stem clearance. The finest valve and seat
grinding and cutting equipment is used to assure a truly concentric valve job with
as many as six radiused and blended angles. Each step is critical and we feel we
perform each with as much care and professionalism as possible. Performance records
on the strips and streets of America bear this out. In 1990 Dave Mackie high-performance
heads were on the Easyrider© Streamliner when it became the World's Fastest
Motorcycle at 322+ MPH and it is still the World’s fastest Harley-Davidson. Dave Mackie Engineering headwork was a key component in Bob
"Rat" Taft's Harley-Davidson powered motorcycle when it became the world's "First
8-Second Evolution Harley-Davidson Motorcycle" powered by gasoline.
