Hotrod magazine in the beginning blames the speedometer gear and I agree to a degree.  The main issue is tuning and bad compression.  It also looks like they bought every part I did for my 408 build in the "bionic build" topic, minus the rods. LOL

I have a set of these heads on my Durango with about 6 miles and 4 hours of run time since the overhaul and a slurry in the oil pan... I think that I will be investigating them when I get the engine back out. (Damn computer, stuck the injectors wide open, I fear it washed the cylinders of oil)

I've never heard anything negative about the EQ heads.

up til now me neither. I have used a few sets of them myself. and I'm not saying that the ones in this latest set on my Durango have anything wrong with them.... but after reading that article it definitely has me wondering.
The other sets I have bought have gone onto LA blocks with carb'd intakes. and the LA bolt pattern option. I know that this has NOTHING to do with the possibility of any potential issues, but this set was the 1st set of these heads I have bought with the stock Magnum intake bolt pattern. I have gone straight to EQ in a not so good area of Chicago to buy mine....
