Looks like how some of the W5 castings were sent out years ago.

When I looked up that part # is shows as a raw casting... I can only imagine what it would cost to machine them.

I agree with hotroddave, then at least you know what your getting is machined already.

These are the correct BGE heads left and right

Those unmachined heads will be perfect for shops offering CNC porting

Thank you L4staero! Of the Apache style heads that are made with the higher grade aluminum, these BG heads appear to be a great deal. I figure, with the core charge included, that a pair would cost about $1972.00. The Edelbrock 3G Hemi Performer heads are about $2600.00 for the pair and the cheapest I found the Thitek heads were $2449.00 per head (A2Speed). If my numbers are way off please chime in. Thanks again!

Who did you get those from?

05045468AE is the BGE head I buy from my local dodge guy, on back order till 8/1 I just have one right now.
Like I said earlier I only ever ordered 392 head 3 times but I never got one as unfinished as that.
John every set of W5s and 8s I ever ordered came un-machine.

I bought them from moparpartsinc.com. The part description was head casting. I didn't think it would be a raw casting. They are going back today. I tried the casting number off the big gas head you posted and it doesn't come up on any of the online parts sites.

it won't you have to go to a dealer, every where I try online I get the same thing, either, "I'm sorry that number doesn't exist" or I don't show that as being valid.
my guy found it by dropping the 1st 0 and searching for 5045468AE.
been paying

I ordered my 5037369BD heads through Eastcoast, but like I said I never got a head that raw.
Summit also sells the 5037369BD under 05037369BD .

Well I just went to my local dealer to check that casting number. Pretty much got the "nope doesn't cross, sorry k thanks bye" treatment.

Just how many head types are there? Is there overlapping PNs that have to be conteded with? I'm building a parts list to switch my Dakota from Magnum power.

I may be missing something here, but aren't the part numbers in the links provided above, by L4staero and A990, what you need?

Can I ask what's wrong with the complete head? are the valves not good for heavier springs?

I wanted bare heads for a turbo build so I can use appropriate parts.
