anyone know of a company who makes aftermarket buckets for 450s?
I was told they exist, but cant find any.

What would be the advantage?

No advantage really, needed to install in a bore that was bored .002 over. Its really the only way to use the heads once the bores become worn or damaged. Theres no welding and starting over like there is with cam caps and combustion chambers so it just gets bored over and run to spec with the oversized bucket.

Then that is the advantage.
