ProComp Electronics aka Speedmaster79 is a knockoff company through and through. They gained notoriety with their ProComp 6AL ignition. They were eventually sued by MSD and lost for copycat tactics.

 

Some fun reading...

I also recently found out that they had a "deal" with Terry Parker of Parker Funnelweb intake fame. Instead of distributing his product, they sent it to China, copied his product and put him out of business.

 

Their R&D is "rob and duplicate", not putting in money and hours to provide a better product than the other guy. IMO, as an employee of a performance parts company, I wouldn't spend a dime on their products.

I would be wondering what else is inside the engine. If they put procomp heads on, what other cheap stuff was used? Not trying to be a jerk, but I sure would want to check everything. Hopefully everything works out for you.

i would check the internals of the procomp heads! If they have procomp springs, guides, and valves you can kiss that motor goodbye in a very short period of time.

 

 

Ok I sold the procomp heads. Looking at either trick flow 325’s or Kaase p51’s

Any input?

Both are nice heads. You can’t go wrong with either ones but if it was me I would be leaning towards the Kaase heads. That’s just purely my preference.
