Q. Why should I purchase BRODIX products through an authorized BRODIX dealer instead of buying direct from BRODIX?
A. BRODIX started selling to small engine builders and racers at the local level. As we started to grow our dealer network was born through these channels. By maintaining this philosophy, our dealer network has grown to almost 500 warehouse distributors worldwide. Click here to go to our dealer search page. By supporting this network, we feel you will have a more even playing field when it comes to pricing, product support, and customer service at a local level.
Q. How can I identify the model of the BRODIX head that I have?
A. BRODIX started numbering small block heads in April of 1979; an alpha-numeric system was started with A 1 in August of 1979. Big block heads started with numbers only in April of 1984, but changed to alpha-numeric starting with BB 1 in August of 1984. The stamping is usually located on the end of the casting above the accessory bolt area just below the valve cover rail. We have stamped some heads on the exhaust side of the head as well. The numbering system only identifies the casting model and the year the head was made.

Q. When I call BRODIX with my head numbers for identification, what kind of information can I expect to receive about my BRODIX head?
A. We will only be able to give you the casting model and the year the head was made. Due to the nature of the performance industry, the need to modify parts to fit a particular application, and the long life expectancy of BRODIX heads, there are too many variables to consider when giving information on heads that have been modified after leaving our facility.
Q. How can I tell if my BRODIX heads have been ported?
A. BRODIX heads have a sand cast finish inside and out. If the majority of your intake ports, exhaust ports, and combustion chambers still have the rough texture, they have not been ported. If the heads have been CNC ported, there may be some cutting lines visible on the sharp radius turns in the ports. If the heads have been hand ported, the surface will be very smooth and profiled in all areas including the combustion chambers.
