Our Development in the 5.7/6.1 Hemi field started in 2005 with a couple of nationally ranked shops. We quickly rose to the top of our field with the proper development of our head and cam packages.. Our comps are the fasted and quickest cars in the country. We are making the move from a behind the scenes “wholesale” operation to a more consumer oriented, face to face shop. Our philosophy is a bit different than most. We search out velocity before the maximum CFM. We are not a “on the shelf” performance shop. We are continuing to push the limits of the late model Hemi after a very solid base in the original 5.7/6.1 Heads. We are focusing on the future of the Hemi Market with the Eagle 5.7 heads. Our professional opinion still sees the 5.7/6.1 original castings are an unfinished canvas, with the whole industry being only 75% done with the evolution of the porting/polishing of the head. It is truly in its infancy. We understand what it takes to make a Hemi head work, and although by law I can’t disclose our vendors the trail of cylinder heads being ported points back to us, right here in Houston Texas. We are really looking forward to being a continuing part of the performance world surrounding this platform.
Craig Gallant, owner of GTP has a very long history in the automotive performance industry, dating back to the early 1980’s.
Here is a little bit of his history:
Texas Greyrock Racing 1982-1983- Apprentice mechanic specializing in suspension tech and pit chief in a nationally recognized road race company. Competed at the national level.We will be offering the standard Stage One, Two and Three levels of cylinder heads for the 5.7/6.1 offerings along with about 20 different camshafts for them. Custom Cam’s will be no cost and neither will stroker cams. Were getting all suited up with our website under redesign and introductory pricing for our entry onto LX forums.
Northwest Racing Engines 1984-1985- Head development from street cars to road race vehicles in large volum based out of Houston TX.
Texas Turbo 1986-1988 Specializing in turbocharged V6/V8/V10 in every format. Built numerous head/manifold combinations for high powered street and strip cars to full on exhibition vehicles. Did extensive flow bench work for high boost and high efficiency turbo systems.
Nickens Brothers Racing 1988-1992 Built national level competition eliminator and superstock cylinder heads and sheet metal intakes as well as designing cast intakes for race engine development. Many national titles were set and reset by the development he was in charge of.
GTP 1992- Current. Continuing the development of late model street and racing cylinder heads under his own roof Craig continued with his work in comp eliminator/ super stock and top sportsman development and production. Everything from Small block Ford to Lamborghini V10 done in house by hand. Major contenders in the Early LS1 Chevrolet days. GTP LS1 heads are still highly prized. With the advent of our 5-Axis Haas CNC machine in early 2008 we are now able to greatly speed up the custom order cylinder head of your dreams. All works are still hand ported and finished, but the bulk of material removal has been carefully digitized to speed it up. Custom ordered cylinder heads in about a week !

Actually, we will be needing a few test mules. We've got a lot of heads out there already but were trying to make our own name for ourselves. We've got a long journey to establish ourselves as a prominent name in the hemi world on our own two feet.
If you're a true racer, and are interested in a package send me a PM.
