'06 head on an '08

7 posts in this topic

Anyone know what kind of issues I will run into if I use an '06 head on an '08 450? Will I have problems fitting my stock '08 header or the '08 cams? Will it run better/same/worse?

Anyone tried it?

There are some differences in the heads, but I doubt you'll really notice them in terms of performance.

The head will fit the engine, and I think the exhaust will also fit. Check the part numbers of the two exhaust port gaskets. If they are the same, you're good for sure.

The exhaust port is the same from 06-08 as DR.d and many other pipe manufactures are using the same pipe from 06-08.

You know... I knew that, too.

My brain is a little fried from staring at part numbers, and a lot of them.

Thanks

Steve
