YES, By maintaining a large inventory, we have the benefit of being able to serve our customers quickly and efficiently. No waiting months heads. No importation. No exchange rates or tariffs.
We stand behind our cylinder heads… and our customers. All cylinder heads come with a 13-month warranty. If warranty is required, the process is as follows. We require a video of the serial number on the front of the damaged head as well as the damaged area. We require up to 48 hours for our engineering department to assess the damage. Once we have determined the defect has been caused by a fault on our end, we will ship a new head out to your head office or the initial location it was purchased from.
Our cylinder heads are manufactured by Jereh Power Tech, the #1 SELLING in aftermarket cylinder head production in the USA for the past 5 years. Leveraging a state-of-the-art foundry, Jereh Power Tech implements a fully automated production line, including casting, machining, assembly, and packaging. Jereh Power Tech ensures precision and quality at every stage.
Each head undergoes advanced CNC machining and is subject to a rigorous inspection process, adhering to IATF16949 and ISO9001 standards. This includes comprehensive checks for casting integrity, thickness, and material composition, as well as vacuum, multiple oil/water passage tests to guarantee flawless delivery.
Jereh Power Tech continuous improvement ethos drives them to enhance cylinder head design for optimal performance and longevity, employing high-speed robotics for valve train assembly and thorough inspection to ensure product accuracy and reliability.
Yes, all of our cylinder heads are equipped with Stage 3 - Inconel Valves. Here's what that means and how it benefits your engine:
Stage 1 - Standard Valve:
Our standard cylinder heads come with all essential valve train components, designed for increased strength and a larger water passage size. This design enhances coolant flow, leading to more efficient heat transfer. Additionally, a higher nickel content ensures longer-lasting strength and durability.
Stage 2 - Inconel Exhaust Valve:
At this stage, we equip the cylinder heads with Inconel valves (either intake or exhaust, depending on the application). Inconel valves are renowned for their ability to withstand extreme temperatures and pressures, significantly enhancing engine resilience.
Stage 3 - Inconel Intake AND Exhaust Valves:
Our top-tier offering includes cylinder heads with both Inconel intake and exhaust valves. This setup is designed to handle the extreme temperatures, pressures, and stress generated by upgraded engines, ensuring peak performance under the most demanding conditions.
Caterpillar Head C15 Universal Cylinder Head:
Applied Engine Prefix:
One Universal Cylinder Head for 3406E, C15, C15 Acert with provided plug kit covering ALL engines produced from the year 1994-2010.

A cylinder head sits on top  of the engine block (It forms the upper ceiling of the  combustion chamber). Cylinder heads improve the  turbulence of the air/fuel mixture and prevent fuel  droplets from settling on the combustion chamber.  In addition to this, the cylinder head provides  thermal insulation (while the engine side gets very  hot …up to 300 degrees, the external side needs to  remain relatively cool. The cylinder head absorbs  about 70 % of the heat generated by the engine and  must resist high levels of thermal and mechanical  stress.

Yes. Some of them  can be. It is Dependent on the level of damage.

A cylinder head  gasket is a complex high-tech component primarily  designed to keep the various media such as water  and oil apart in the engine, as well as providing an  external seal.

It is based on the  year and the manufacturer of the engine Cylinder  heads are brand specific (Cummins, Twin Cam or Single Overhead Cam). Also based on the model and  displacement size. 

We offer free, same day delivery within the Edmonton area (dependent on what time of day you order).

Every step is meticulously designed and executed according to IATF16949 quality standards, ensuring a product that not only meets but exceeds the highest industry standards.
  • Rigorous Inspection and Testing: Before leaving the foundry, each head undergoes strict metallographic and hardness inspections to verify its composition, along with comprehensive vacuum, oil, and water passage testing to guarantee performance under demanding conditions.
  • Designed for Durability: We've improved the structure and wall thickness of our cylinder heads to withstand intense heat and tough working conditions, ensuring longevity and reliability.
  • Innovative Design: Tailored design for critical engine parts to cater to specific applications, coupled with an increased use of nickel alloy for enhanced overall quality.

Replacing a  cylinder head requires coolant to be drained,  removal of turbos, intake pipes, valve cover, rockers,  injectors and head bolts. The head can then be  removed and replaced.

Once the  cylinder head is oZ it must be tested at a machine  shop to be inspected and diagnosed if it can be  safely repaired. If so, steps will be taken to weld the  cracks and the head will be re-machined. New valve  seats, new valves and new springs will need to be  installed.  

Here’s how to know. 

  • Check Engine Light comes on 
  • Engine overheating 
  • Low coolant levels 
  • White smoke coming from the exhaust 
  • Bubbling in the Coolant Reservoir 
  • Unexplained coolant loss with no leaks 
  • Milky white coloration in the oil 
  • Misfires and Rough Running Engine
