GTP
G.T.P. is continuously developing late model street and racing cylinder heads everything from small block Ford to Lamborghini V12 done in house by hand. Major contenders in the Early LS1 Chevrolet days, GTP LS1 heads are still highly prized. With the advent of our 5-Axis Haas CNC machine in early 2008 we are now able to greatly speed up the custom order cylinder head of your dreams. All cylinder heads are still hand ported and finished, but the bulk of material removal has been carefully digitized to speed it up. Your custom ordered cylinder heads are completed in 1-2 weeks!
We offer standard Street, Street/Strip, and Race levels of cylinder head along with a large selection of different camshafts.
