Instagram Site

Hello,
Is there any other way of seeing the new heads, beside joining Instagram site?

Nice Heads

Hello everyone, Mr. Klaus is well known for his great design.That prototype looks like it will fit the bill. Does anyone know how large of a build those heads will accommodate? Also how about the timeframe of when they are the ready to sell. Lastly how much will they cost. Thanks for sharing

Klaus Parts

Hello, I have tried to contact Mr. Klaus on this latest success (heads). I clearly like his work. I think there is a language barrier. I also feel that he may not want to do business in the USA. Is there anyone that can reach him and convey my questions on the topic of his heads;
1. What is the status of his heads?
2. How large of a displacement will they fit, such as up 105mm?
3. Will they be on the market in the very near future?
4. Does he plan to sell them through out the world?
5. How much will the top of the line set cost?

I would like to know, to start saving for them. He may not want to respond. He has shown them to the world, this mean to me that he is not just making a set for himself and no one else need inquire. I hope none of you reading this post take offense to this post.

Klaus contact

Hello everyone, I tried to contact Mr. Klaus. I asked questions on his heads. I am not sure if he read the site or wants to respond. Is there anyone in Germany that can contact him to inquire on what is his ultimate goal with the heads. If the heads are to be used solely for his builds only, or any other response would be good. So, can someone pass my question on to Mr. Klaus.
Thanks

Why are you asking him?The heads might be a collaboration with Mr Klaus but are made by EnhancedCastings.From what I've gathered his father owns a foundry and those heads will be poured and machined there.
Ask him-he speaks(or at least writes)English.

Cheers,Arnoud

Hello Arnoud, thanks for the information. At the onset of my inquiry, I only knew that Mr. Klaus was in the loop. Thus I thought the heads were his. Can you tell me who should I e-mail? At this point I'll try Enhanced Castings. Thanks for the update.

Hi, I did a search, but "Enhanced Castings" is a process, do you have a name? or company name. Hello everyone, the Enhanced Castings heads project feedback is on Instagram.
