Hi there!

What you are talking about is a DOHC. If you are translating into English use just the initials. That's how its known in mechanics. Otherwise you can always put between brackets (Double Overhead camshaft or Cames) - this is of course "árbol de levas a la cabeza"

As for "cabezote de flujo cruzado" your translation to English is :
Cross-flow cylinder head
