Stage 2 Cylinder Head Package

Solid Performance Value

SKU: 165 Category:


The JAM Stage 2 cylinder head package is designed for use on larger displacement engines (2.2, 2.3) higher boost and higher RPM applications. It utilizes larger +1mm valves and custom port work to increase flow by up to 15%. The included manganese bronze valve guides offer lower friction, better valve control, enhanced airflow and a higher tolerance to heat produced by endurance, higher boost and RPM. With high pressure Kiggly springs, this cylinder head is recommended for applications seeing up to 25psi boost. For 2.0L applications with higher than 25psi, choose the Manley dual spring upgrade to allow proper valve control at higher boost. For 2.3L applications with higher than 25psi we recommend going with our Stage 3 cylinder head. Please call or email with any questions regarding your application.

Available for 6 and 7 bolt DSM and Evo 4-9. Good core is required.
