Butler Performance Top End Kits

Complete top end kit with almost everything you need to upgrade your normal Pontiac to a Butler High Performace Pontiac. These combinations have been used in Butler Performance builds for many years and have powered some of the highest performing Pontiac engines in the world. We now offer these kits to take the guesswork out of piecing together a good combination that works well together. All these kits are actual build kits used in our shops. If its on here we use it in our own shop!!


Edelbrock 61529 Complete Heads

The CNC machined chamber results in a consistent and precise chamber for improved flow performance. Performer RPM CNC cylinder heads are available in two chamber sizes. The 87cc chamber version is ideal for 9.5:1 engines and will deliver excellent street performance on low octane fuel. Performer RPM CNC cylinder heads with 72cc chambers are best for higher compression engines. Both are patterned after the same port flange configuration as the 1969-1970 Ram-Air IV Pontiac Cylinder Head.

Butler Exclusive COMP 852B Lifters- (Hy-lift Johnson/Made In The USA)

.842" diameter; 97g weight; 2.05" seat height Patented orifice metering valve precisely meters oil to the rocker arms Continuous contact between metering valve and hardened pushrod seat is maintained, eliminating excessive oiling at high engine speeds Contain a longer piston than conventional hydraulic lifters, which provides more load bearing surface and increases lifter longevity Lightweight check valve disc allows for quicker response and maintains added control at all engine speeds and loads

Intake Option- Port matched to the heads

7156 Performer RPM- Dual Plane with broader power curve. IN our experience this is the most versatile street/performance intake on the market. 7/8 taller than stock. (requires drop base for Shaker applications)

5056 Torker II- Single Plane with slightly more top end/peak hp. Slightly lower torque curve off idle. .250 taller than stock.

Pushrods & Pushrod Checker

We include a pushrod length checking tool in each kit for measuring proper pushrod length. Because brands of lifters and rockers require different pushrod length.


We offer many style rockers to choose from. Rockers that will work for these kits include stainless steel or aluminum from brands such as Comp, Scorpion, PRW, Crower, and more.

We recommend 1.5 ratio rockers so that pushrod slotting is not neccessary.
