    Are there any outwardly-visible differences between Gen 2 heads and Striker heads? What I mean is can you tell a Striker head while its on the car and under a valve cover. I've never seen one and don't know whether this is possible. Anyone with Strikers know?

    I have a few pics that may help. If you can see the top of the intake ports on the stock head, they have a lot of casting flash. The Striker head does not. Also look for a stamped serial number and the Striker logo. The deck surface of the head is much thicker than the stocker.

    Ya but it's on the intake port side. Kind of hard to see under the intake manifold.

    So does anyone know if that place out in Nevada is gonna produce Strikers for a GenII? Exotic Engine Development I think was the name.
