After extensive research and development regarding the airflow capabilities and performance characteristics of this cylinder head, IMCA has decided to permit another stock replacement cylinder head in addition to the already approved IMCA EQ cylinder head. 

The DART cylinder head will be allowed in Stock Cars utilizing the 500 carburetor option, as well as Hobby Stock and both Northern SportMod and Southern SportMod divisions.

“Obviously, this is a result in part of the coronavirus pandemic, which has slowed down an already delayed supply of the EQ cylinder head. They were behind the eight ball to begin with and COVID-19 has only magnified the problem,” said IMCA President Brett Root. “IMCA has been patient, as have our member drivers, who have expressed concern over the supply of cylinder heads.” 

“As the country prepares to re-open, we simply cannot have members unable to get parts they need to complete their race cars and compete at sanctioned events,” he concluded. 

The IMCA trademark is required on both EQ and DART cylinder heads.

“As established in our successful lawsuit against Brzezinski Racing Products, the trademark provides IMCA and our members comfort in knowing they are purchasing the correct engine component,” Root said.
