About Us

Cylinder Head Innovations or “C.H.I.” is a family owned business run by father and son team Neville and Scott March.

Since 1972 Neville has specialized in cylinder heads and performance engine building under the names “Head Craft”, and “Pro Heads”, both very successful cylinder head porting and engine building shops with a reputation for quality work, and a long list of loyal regular customers.

In 2009 Neville and Scott purchased the company CHI and the 3V brand.

Building on a great concept of cylinder head design and manufacture, they have built CHI up to a position of supplying specialized heads and manifolds to almost every form of professional V8 racing. This includes Circuit racing, Drag racing, Speedway and Burnout cars.

Neville and Scott both bring extensive motor racing experience having campaigned together since Scott was young. Starting in Go Carts, then Formula Ford, and later Konica series V8 supercar and Australian Nascar series.

As an engineer specializing in fluid dynamics, Scott heads up the engineering and design team but is not too proud to collaborate with cylinder head, manifold and engine performance experts around the word.

People like Jon Kaase, Dave Storlien, Phil Martin, Leon Withnell and Andrew Kostecki have all had design input on various CHI products. These collaborations have led to several years dominance of the U S Engine Masters competition, and the preferred choice for engine builders around the world.
