hi all... as some of you well know, i bought a 383 chevy engine from FASTCO! it never ran right from day one. to cut a VERY LONG story short... it failed!!! i gave it to a company who i have been dealing with for 10 years now to investigate and here is an email from them with their findings. i can only upload 5 pics, so have posted the rest on next thread.
i have a lot more pics etc to prove that DR DICK @ FASTCO is to put it mildley a cowboy!! if anyone wants anymore info, i would be glad to post.. i also have a build portfolio with pics, and to be honest it ISNT OF MY ENGINE!! do's he just have one set of photos that he sends out to everyone??... you decide:twisted:

below is email..
cheers

Hi Tony,

Engine all in bits now and here's what we have so far.

First up is a big lie from the states - Spec sheet categorically states that block is a four bolt main cap type - pics in folder show this type of block.
This refers to the number of bolts holding each main crank bearing cap down. 4 is stronger than 2. Engine you have is a 2 bolt type - pic 1 shows a 2 bolt main cap from your engine.

Next up the low oil pressure. This engine has main bearing failure. Pic 2 shows a scored up main journal on the crank and pic 3 shows a trashed main bearing shell.
This will mean a crankshaft grind and new bearings.

Crank is an Eagle stroker, but markings don't help me identify it as internal or external balance for certain - something we need to be 100% with on reassembly.

Pistons are all OK and are the Keith Black type promised. Conrods are all good items. Rings should be reusable too. Oil pump is the promised Melling Hi-vol type - I'll strip it to make sure it is not shot.

Pics 4 and 5 show big end bearing and big end journal on crank -which while they have not failed, are marked where dirt has been round them.

Pic 6 shows scratches on piston skirt from dirt - not harmful once we have cleaned it all.

Pic 7 is interesting - it shows a big end bearing crank journal, with some tiny dent marks on the surface. These can only be caused during assembly, not during running. Something has knocked against the surface - probably the conrod, whilst it was being fitted !

All this suggests lack of care when building.

Last up is camshaft - it has failed (several lobes have failed). Pic 8 shows a lobe that is still in correct shape, with a bit of a point and pic 9 shows a much rounded lobe where it is wearing down.
The cam has no markings on it to identify it - I am quite surprised by this, so I don't know if it is a genuine Isky cam, or a cheap copy. I have measured the lift, and allowing for the high ratio rockers, the lift is of the spec Daryl has stated. New cam and lifters and rockers are required.



My opinion is that (knowing this engine had low oil pressure from the moment it was run) this engine had these problems before it was shipped.


Cheers for now

Clive

Ok, If you had of said 250K miles then would have said it had a fair life but 2500 was not exactly a good run,:(

Like you said though, Surprised it managed that much.

Wonder if was the cam shaft being destroyed that caused the bearing failure?

Before you go ahead with re-grinding the crank check the cost against a new one.
Might be cheaper and easier to just start again.

Was going to say that there would be an extra cost to get it balanced :shock: but based on previous experience that would be advisable to get done again regardless. What a total T55ER

Hang on a minute.

That could be 2500 miles flat out up and down the Mulsanne straght 7000rpm in 3rd gear.
How long ago was the engine shipped, 4 years probably.
It looks like you have been scoring those bearings and pistons witha sharp object.
Clearly, those ports have been removed and attacked with an angle grinder.
If you left well alone, that motor would be running sweetly now.
There are thousands of happy customers with this spec.
Clearly you have done all this to try and drum up bizz

In the last 2 years or so ive had 3 fastco engines at my place which came in for dyno testing
all of them started with a crank grind and line hone plus variuos repairs and rectifications to poor quality parts/workmanship
the bearings in v8capri's motor come as no surprise as ive seen 3 sets like that before
the good thing to come from all this is it can only help to support the business and reputation of the american v8 engine builders in this country as i am sure none of us would turn out crap like that in the first place and if there were problems would stand on and sort it out even if it was after 4 years
it may cost a little bit more money to have an engine built in this country but atleast you would get an honest and fair outcome if things did go wrong

I have read the recent posts concerning Fasto engines. This latest post worries me. The evidence is undeniable. My engine has done only 380 miles . No problems so far. Do I wait until it shows signs of problems or take it to Mike Huddart or another qualified UK engine builder for an assessment. I have avoided commenting until now, as I was not convinced of evidence and arguments given in previous discussions.

Regards Ian.

Ian - probably best to bite the bullet now, whatever emerges you will end up with a better performing and reliable engine. And let's face it, will you ever be happy about walloping the noise pedal if you don't?

morning all!!

confused is an understatement.. when i first contacted dr dick about vibrating issues, he told me that we hadnt put the "balancing plate on the RIGHT way":confused: "balance plate" i said!! "it didnt come with one daryl":confused:

oh, he said! "you must have lost it, it was with all the eagle balance papers, dyno graph,important paperwork etc etc in a zip folder stapled to the inside of the crate"

"NO DARYL" i said, "it wasnt there":confused:
anyway after a load of B/S, he sent one over at MY cost!!!
fitted it and HEY PRESTO...... made it worse!!:confused:

now we were really CONFUSED:confused: "DARYL.. ITS WORSE WITH IT ON" "you must have it on the wrong way round", he said!, "FCUK OFF DARYL, WE AINT FCUKING STUPID!!" i said....

now comes dr dicks answer of all answers.......

"OH.... IT MUST BE AN INTERNALLY BALANCED ENGINE!!"

"I THOUGHT YOU BUILT THESE ENGINES??" i said... "of course i do" he says!!

SO HOW CAN AN "ENGINE BUILDER" NOT KNOW IF AN ENGINE HE HAS "SUPPOSEDLY" BUILT, BE AN INTERNAL OR EXTERNALLY BALANCED ENGINE:confused::confused:

"OH, I REMEMBER NOW, WE DID BUILD A FEW WITH INT BALANCE" he said!! "YOURS MUST HAVE BEEN ONE OF THEM!!"

LOL, well one thing is for sure, his business in the UK Cobra market has suffered far more damage than than your engine.;) Reputation in business takes a long time to acheive and a good businessman will do all he can to protect it especially if he's at fault. Can't understand a man who wouldn't.
Not much consolation, but it seems like the cowboy just shot himself in both feet to me.

Steve - if you are a bad'un and know you are rumbled, then all you can do is a: bluster, and b: when that gets rejected, find another market.

I think that what we have to do is ensure that anyone building other types of V8-engined cars also get the message that has emerged here. Brothers in petrol and all that.

The fact that now not one, but two respected UK builders have openly stated the problems they have seen with these engines rather tops it all. Yes, they are competitors, but also people with good reputations and lots of happy customers, who stand by their work.

Even the best engine builders will occasionally have problems - after all they are not in control of their product once it leaves their workshops, but their reaction to those problems says it all.

My sentiments exactly Wilf, the more people who know of these 'John Waynes' the better, just a note to anyone thinking of buying an engine from across the pond, look carefully at what you get for your money. When I was looking for my engine I compared everything from spec to total cost (inc duty) and found that I got the clutch assembly and bellhousing included from Mike Huddart at a cheaper price than any of the american builders who did not include the same. I also got after sales service in this country. Not knocking any of the reputable builders from across the way, or teaching anybody to suck egg's but from my experience buying the engine in the uk was a no-brainer.

Steve, Wilf,

Totally agree, I was looking at buying from across the pond, luckily the exchange rates dropped just at the right time, otherwise I would have probably have gone to FASTCO. I'll give him his due, very good marketing.

Thanks to all the threads on both the cobra sites it (and the exchange rate) has probably saved me a lot of hastle, money and stress. Like Steve says I don't think it works out any cheaper to go to the USA especially at the moment. I'll definately be buying from a British engine builer, for the aftersales/ guarantee as much as anything

Not wishing to stick the boot in and please correct me if I am wrong as to why but if Dr Dee is ‘all dat’ when it comes to custom built engines then why does Fastco buy some of its parts from ebay? Look at his feedback (http://feedback.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=drdeefastco&ftab=FeedbackAsBuyer) as a buyer (ignore the dodgy taste in music !)

I've rattled on about this for the last 3 years, you might sometimes get a better deal buying from the States BUT is that saving worth anything if something should go wrong??

Buying in this country is a complete no brainer for me and I was very fortunate to place my order with one of the best. They have been brilliant and when things did go wrong a couple of months ago (which was completely out of everyone's hands) they pulled out all the stops to get me sorted :cool:

05-02-09, 11:32 AM
Noel - right, up to a point. Granted there are great UK engine builders, my own reliable ol' thing came from the UK.

But I could give you several US engine builders that I would trust implicitly. Gordon Levy, George Anderson, Joe Boghosian, spring to mind immediately. And there are others.

For more specialised engines than our relatively "cooking" small blocks, I would still look westwards.

What it boils down to is deal with someone you know..............and trust.

Agree 100% Wilf, but I bet these guys do not do "bargains" or "cheap deals" and quite rightly so, if you are going to build an engine properly it is not going to be cheap, especially if it is not run of the mill?

I suppose the rub, and the point being made in this thread by V8Capri, is getting charged and then being supplied with something completely inferior to what you think you are getting?

dingocooke
05-02-09, 01:20 PM
My take on this is get references first, Southern automotive and Guessford always get great reviews so a safe bet, especially if your looking for a Big block/FE/SO motor.

Also, I instinctively give a very wide birth to any company promising the earth in garish badly spelt, gramatically poor advertisements; clearly this isnt always infallible, but my experience is you are more likely to get disappointed with these sort of suppliers than the more realistic ones, compare Southern Automotive's site to Fastco's for example.
Same deal whether youre buying stateside or in the UK there are cowboys and fantasists on both side the pond

I have no experience at all of either company, but I do know that if something sounds too good to be true then it usually is!!

THEY DO NOT KEEP EVERY DYNO PULL ON RECORD FOR EVER no one i know does,... We dug round on Joes computer found this one.....

I could pop up to Ken at EDA and pull off every single dyno run (and we had lots and lots and lots) from back in 2000. We have over 200 pulls on the engine, each one kept in a customer file for future reference.

Thats called customer service. ;)

HERE IS MY FINAL REPONSE TO TONY DOWNES ENGINE ISSUE.... This engine was severly overheated & all damage was due to this SEVERE ENGINE OVERHEATING eg operating engine above 255F.... 100% not an assembly errror or defecttive products...

Yes Tony there are your heads i can take more detailed photos if you wish... but i do not think i need to..these heads show the intake port issue / the port that developed the leak. And clearly shows the reddish Permatex gasket sealant used on ports originally.... And show clearly the new FEL=PRO gasket remains that were installed by C/O UK to fix the leak on intake centre port perfectly.. and you then drove the car 6/7+ months & 2500+ miles....

Now as we all can see in #2 photo i posted of your heads... @ the end of 1 head we can see what looks like a small metal tab on end of the one head... this is a engine heat tab i metal epoxy'd onto your head when engine was built Dec 07 and we load these HEAT tabs onto ALL our engines... regardless of BHP output...almost ALL engine builders & machine shops here in the USA load these HEAT tabs on there engines.. they are tamper proof and permenant.. they have a metal sensitive center core that is engineered to MELT out @ 255F to 260F...when an engine is SEVERLY over heated / operated above 250F the centre of this heat tab MELTS out... showing proof positive the engine has been FRY'D / SEVERLY OVERHEATED....
Go here to see GOODSON'S tech on these heat tabs we use on all engines.......... Heat Tabs (http://goodson.com/store/template/product_detail.php?IID=2911&&)

Now below are close up photos of the end of that head with the HEAT sensitive Goodson engine tab.

shows close up of your engines heat tab.... and beside that is a NEW GOODSON heat tab so we may compare the two
as we can CLEARLY see the heat tab on the top / yours the centre of this heat tab is MELTED out... this is 100% proof this heat tab has seen engine operating temps ABOVE 255F ... WAY ABOVE SAFE operating engine tempeture... this is the reason for your DISTROYED engine bearings & wasted cam & lifters ect ect and THE ENGINE COOKED ITSELF TO DEATH...who cooked it only you know you or your bondo buddies....someone ran this engine above 255F... and FRY"D this engine.... Your engine damage IS NOT in anyway an engine assembly error as you state... This severe damage was caused by an SEVERLY overheated engine 100 % completely out of our controll as we all know... You Tony or someone who's worked on or driven your car has FRY'D that engine....this is a fact..not a guess not an idea or a maybe.. it is a clear proven fact.

Yes you did call me last year and said you engine ran HOT and engine would run on after ignition is turned OFF for quite sometme....when an engine is OVERHEATED this will happen & the engine WILL run on after ignition is turned OFF... a tell tale sign the engine is OVERHEATING severly.
id.. get the proper rad & fan in that car... YOU MUST have proper engine cooling temps in the range of 180F to 190 F NO HIGHER or you WILL fry / cook that engine....
You or someone did NOT address this OVERHEATING problem & continued operate this engine & severly overheated it & this is the damage we ALL SEE is done.. bearings wasted... cam & lifters wasted.. ect ect this is 100% normal on a severly overheated engine. ASK ANYONE ANYWHERE Tony,..
This engine damage was caused by you or someone who has worked & driven you car..........and has 0 to do with engine assembly or quality of parts... engine dyno prints clearly show engine operating temps and is well with in SAFE engine temp range.
Dr,Dee

shows close up of your engines heat tab.... and beside that is a NEW GOODSON heat tab so we may compare the two
as we can CLEARLY see the heat tab on the top / yours the centre of this heat tab is MELTED out... this is 100% proof this heat tab has seen engine operating temps ABOVE 255F ... WAY ABOVE SAFE operating engine tempeture... this is the reason for your DISTROYED engine bearings & wasted cam & lifters ect ect and THE ENGINE COOKED ITSELF TO DEATH...who cooked it only you know you or your bondo buddies....someone ran this engine above 255F... and FRY"D this engine.... Your engine damage IS NOT in anyway an engine assembly error as you state... This severe damage was caused by an SEVERLY overheated engine 100 % completely out of our controll as we all know... You Tony or someone who's worked on or driven your car has FRY'D that engine....this is a fact..not a guess not an idea or a maybe.. it is a clear proven fact.

Yes you did call me last year and said you engine ran HOT and engine would run on after ignition is turned OFF for quite sometme....when an engine is OVERHEATED this will happen & the engine WILL run on after ignition is turned OFF... a tell tale sign the engine is OVERHEATING severly.
id.. get the proper rad & fan in that car... YOU MUST have proper engine cooling temps in the range of 180F to 190 F NO HIGHER or you WILL fry / cook that engine....
You or someone did NOT address this OVERHEATING problem & continued operate this engine & severly overheated it & this is the damage we ALL SEE is done.. bearings wasted... cam & lifters wasted.. ect ect this is 100% normal on a severly overheated engine. ASK ANYONE ANYWHERE Tony,..
This engine damage was caused by you or someone who has worked & driven you car..........and has 0 to do with engine assembly or quality of parts... engine dyno prints clearly show engine operating temps and is well with in SAFE engine temp range.

TONY I NOT PLAY"N ANY GAME HERE............ALL OUR ENGINES ARE LOADED WITH THESE HEAT TABS SINCE I"VE BEEN BUILDING ENGINE.... I DO NOT MENTION THESE TABS.... why shoulld i... we can ALL see how extreemly valuable these tabs can be...
You would not have noticed them LESS you knew they were there..... YOUR ENGINE WAS DISTROYED BY SEVERE OVERHEATING


you are some flower!!!!!! i might not be a mechanic... but i aint FCUKING STUPID! i at least know that when the temp guage starts rising and not falling when at motorway speed, i know to "STOP" IMMEDIATLEY! and that is what i done,breakdown recovery was called, and it was taken to my garage, and not driven till problem was rectified.. .. im not gonna pay out all that money and risk frying an engine!!! and dont tell me i wouldnt have or my mechanics wouldnt have noticed them things on my heads, i was the one that packaged them up to throw back at you!! and "if", and its a "BIG IF" they were on there, why didnt you inform me of this problem ages ago before i even posted on here??? WHY...... cause you are a LYING C**T:twisted:!!

Water @15psi boils at 250 degrees F. Why would you put a Heat Tab on the hottest part of an engine? Heads often see 300 degrees C (let alone F) near an exhaust port! which is where it is.

What are drunk.... tab is located @ REAR of head NO WHERE nere EXHASUT port in the middle of head behind that is coolant passage... been put'n them there for years as 1,000 of others have,..... on stock & full bore race engines
and they've been there for 10's of years and are still intact.. WHY.. because the engines were NEVER over heated.. .... simple as that.

Why has it taken you 11 days to post about these tabs? If as you say you have been using them for years then surely that would have been the first thing you would have checked? You could have dismissed Tony's issues in your first post rather than letting it drag on for 231 posts over the two forums.

Sorry Tony... we had to let you state..all your well BS...... then i produced the facts & photos.... sort'a like why let the cat outa the bag... too soon........

Bottom line is you or someone has FRY"D that engine running.it OVER 255 F as heat tab has indicated....there is question that engine was OVERHEATED & FRY"D... .....

As far as you NOT noticing any heat tab on end head OFCOURSE you did not... you would not have...why because you or you buddies had NO clue what one looks like OR what it was TILL NOW! Dr.Dee

If you've been mounting these tabs to your engines for over 10 years why would you NOW ring the manufacturers to ask where they are supposed to be mounted?

Hey Dr.

The Goodson website

http://www.goodson.com/technical_support/instructions/HT-100.pdf

states that you should issue the heat tab "Warranty" certificate to the customer to warn them of the tabs.

Did you do this Dr. Dee or didn't you like the wording:

"This engine is warranteed against defective materials and workmanship for....."

Very good of you to send tony the CNC ported heads at no extra cost and you threw in the shipping (Which cost you nothing as you shipped them with someone else engine).
Did you by any chance pay for Tony's tear down costs and his costs for shipping the shagged heads back to you and then the cost of getting the new "CNC" ones fitted? Didn't think so, your additional expense in all this has been far less than Tony's, so I don't think you should go busting a gut trying to suck your own dick on that basis.

What about the 4 bolt block?
What about the cast, not billet fly wheel?
What about the "Hight torque" starter motor?
What about the "Performance" clutch?
What about the build pictures?
What about the dyno results?
What about the dyno pictures?

So many questions remaining unanswered.....As usual.:rolleyes:
You have one vague theory in your head and you cling to it like a baby chimpanzee does to it's mother.
Whether Tony cooked the engine or not is irrelavent, when you take into account all the other things listed above which happened before he ever started the thing up.

"30 years in the biz"? More like 1 years experience , that's 29 years our of date.
"Often immitated, never duplicated"! Thank fcuk for that, is what I have to say.

At least people searching for "Fastco" on Google will have something other than your self promoting BS to look at with all this 5hit in the fan now.;)

So no comment on Tony's tear down costs ans shipping to you etc.
Conveniently forgot about that bit eh?

Could you explain how Tony's build photos of his engine have pictures of a 4 bolt block (Like he ordered), and yet the engine he recieved had a 2 bolt block???
Your talk about making up for it with an internal balanced crank is pure horse5hit. If doing that was such a good idea/offer, then why didn't you tell him about it before taking his money?
Cos you thought you could pull a fast one and get away with it.....BUT YOU FAILED!

You might have convinced yourself that it is OK to miss sell an engine but I pretty much doubt anyone else shares that concept.

The trouble with BS is that if you spout it for long enough you start believing it yourself.
You are a text book case of this.

GUESS WHAT.... THEY BOTH STATE THAT THEY ARE 99% SURE THAT THEM TABS WERE NOT ON MY ENGINE!! also stating that you have more than likely put a blowtorch to em!!?? also been told by an independant engine builder, that they are usually put on the block area to get a true reading!! also been told that if it was fryed, the pistons would be a kind of bluey colour... mine were not!! please explain... and not your normal LONG BULLSHIT ANSWERS EITHER:mrgreen:

Not true - I have a longer memory, and possibly better connection into the US Cobra scene.

The confusion between 2 and 4 bolt blocks is part of a more general confusion about blocks. Seems there was confusion between centre and side oiler blocks too...........a long time ago, and that did for Fastco in the USA, he came looking for fresher fields further abroad.

The USA has tougher consumer laws than we do - just try a search on "Better Business Bureau" to see what I mean. Just ONE proven fraud (like passing off a 2 bolt block as a 4 bolt block) is enough to shut a business down.

There IS a similarity between Fastco and Smax - they both supply bona fide parts and builds into the "professional" areas like the race and drag scene, where any attempt to pass off anything as something it is not spreads through the scene like wildfire. They then use this success to impress less knowledgeable folks. And the fact that these old USA V8s tolerate massive malpractice and keep on running somehow covers their possibly less than wonderful efforts in more mundane engine builds.

"Amateur" scenes like ours are easier pickings. We didn't have a collective voice until very recently. Now we do.

I will say one thing though - he is clinging on like mad. First class bluster and invention - always the mark of a great engine supplier.

As CapriV8 (and a very reputable UK engine builder) says - if this engine had been overheated to destruction, the components MOST likley to show signs of that would be the pistons, and guess what? They offer up no overheating indications whatsoever.

Yes Tony there are your heads i can take more detailed photos if you wish... but i do not think i need to..these heads show the intake port issue / the port that developed the leak. And clearly shows the reddish Permatex gasket sealant used on ports originally.... And show clearly the new FEL=PRO gasket remains that were installed by C/O UK to fix the leak on intake centre port perfectly.. and you then drove the car 6/7+ months & 2500+ miles....

Now as we all can see in #2 photo i posted of your heads... @ the end of 1 head we can see what looks like a small metal tab on end of the one head... this is a engine heat tab i metal epoxy'd onto your head when engine was built Dec 07 and we load these HEAT tabs onto ALL our engines... regardless of BHP output...almost ALL engine builders & machine shops here in the USA load these HEAT tabs on there engines.. they are tamper proof and permenant.. they have a metal sensitive center core that is engineered to MELT out @ 255F to 260F...when an engine is SEVERLY over heated / operated above 250F the centre of this heat tab MELTS out... showing proof positive the engine has been FRY'D / SEVERLY OVERHEATED....
Go here to see GOODSON'S tech on these heat tabs we use on all engines.......... Heat Tabs (http://goodson.com/store/template/product_detail.php?IID=2911&&)

Now below are close up photos of the end of that head with the HEAT sensitive Goodson engine tab.
Pic # 1 shows end of your head with Goodson heat tab epoxy'd onto head

Pic # 2
http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y140/fastco/TONYSFRYDENGINE7.jpg

shows close up of your engines heat tab.... and beside that is a NEW GOODSON heat tab so we may compare the two
as we can CLEARLY see the heat tab on the top / yours the centre of this heat tab is MELTED out... this is 100% proof this heat tab has seen engine operating temps ABOVE 255F ... WAY ABOVE SAFE operating engine tempeture... this is the reason for your DESTROYED engine bearings & wasted cam & lifters ect ect and THE ENGINE COOKED ITSELF TO DEATH...who cooked it only you know you or your bondo buddies....someone ran this engine above 255F... and FRY"D this engine.... Your engine damage IS NOT in anyway an engine assembly error as you state... This severe damage was caused by an SEVERLY overheated engine 100 % completely out of our controll as we all know... You Tony or someone who's worked on or driven your car has FRY'D that engine....this is a fact..not a guess not an idea or a maybe.. it is a clear proven fact.

Yes you did call me last year and said you engine ran HOT and engine would run on after ignition is turned OFF for quite sometme....when an engine is OVERHEATED this will happen & the engine WILL run on after ignition is turned OFF... a tell tale sign the engine is OVERHEATING severly.
id.. get the proper rad & fan in that car... YOU MUST have proper engine cooling temps in the range of 180F to 190 F NO HIGHER or you WILL fry / cook that engine....

You or someone did NOT address this OVERHEATING problem & continued operate this engine & severly overheated it & this is the damage we ALL SEE is done.. bearings wasted... cam & lifters wasted.. ect ect this is 100% normal on a severly overheated engine. ASK ANYONE ANYWHERE Tony,..
This engine damage was caused by you or someone who has worked & driven you car..........and has 0 to do with engine assembly or quality of parts... engine dyno prints clearly show engine operating temps and is well with in SAFE engine temp range.

Just trying to warn others of what to expect when they buy an engine from Fastco and it goes wrong.
Having used Fastco more engines that anyone else in the UK I am probably the most qualified person to to warn/inform others of what to expect.

Summary:
In my own experience. (And now finding out more of other peoples experiences) I can conclude that:-
Fastco wriggles and does whatever it takes, by foul means or fair, to pass all blame onto the customer, taking no responsibility for any of the engines failings even when proof is beyond doubt.
No apologies have been forth coming.
No offer of correction have been made.(RE: 4 bolt block)
No compensation offered.
And he calls that "Case Closed".

Well we've all seen how you are in regards to your posts here Tony... and your a HOT head...Right from the very begining...YOU had a intake issue.... that was EASILY corrected & was.. then you blamed the engine for severe vibration... this turned out to be FALSE.... You frig'n went off like a loose cannon about get F'd with the head issue / port leak.. and posted how you'd been F'd on CRC site WITHOUT fully discussing a solution with me personaly... then you call me and we talk.../ what YOU should have done in the 1st place... then i agree to EXHANGE heads for CNC ported heads @ and eat $1000 USD and ship free... THIS IS CUSTOMER SERVICE ... NO other company i know would have done this... They would have ONLY replaced the original heads that were supplied and NOT... sent a much more expensive heads as i did.
After this 1st round i'd seen how you can FLIP FLOP around.....and with all the info i was sent... in regards to your engine OVERHEATING & being WAY out'a tune....and the constant fig'n round with by NON qualified people / EXCEPT Crazy Horse..they are the ONLY ones that gave specs when i asked & LISTENED to me in regards to SETTINGS...
NO specs were EVER sent... by you or the bondo boys.. as i requested over & over again.

Before the heads were replaced the ONLY complaint you had was you wanted those heads replaced the car ran fine BUT you wanted heads replaced........Iafter all the e-mails and dealing with you... i had a STRONG feeling this would NOT be the last i'd heard... and this engine MAY have been damaged due to improper work & overheating
And i sat back and waited...and knew you would deny twist information and facts... as you've proven you do.. So i let you go on & on rant'n & rave'n till the you admitted YES the engine WAS overheated and posted you DID overheat this engine..Ofcouse i looked @ the heat tab on your head when they arrived & it was melted & proves the engine WAS overheated.... BUT i did NOT bring this information & proof forward soon as i saw the tab MELTED ...why should i have.
You Tony would have DENIED you EVER OVERHEATED THE ENGINE... THATS A FACT we can all see this is exactly what you would have done....RIGHT TONY.........The over heated proof was posted when you admitted you OVERHEATED the engine & admitted the photos were 100% your heads ....this way there was NO way you could deny the facts & proof i presented for all to see.... you admitted you overheated the engine & the photo of your head with heat tab melted backs up your statment 100%.... that engine was severly overheated .& f$@*##@d with over & over....

Well we've all seen how you are in regards to your posts here Tony... and your a HOT head...Right from the very begining...YOU had a intake issue.... that was EASILY corrected & was.. then you blamed the engine for severe vibration... this turned out to be FALSE.... You frig'n went off like a loose cannon about get F'd with the head issue / port leak.. and posted how you'd been F'd on CRC site WITHOUT fully discussing a solution with me personaly... then you call me and we talk.../ what YOU should have done in the 1st place... then i agree to EXHANGE heads for CNC ported heads @ and eat $1000 USD and ship free... THIS IS CUSTOMER SERVICE ... NO other company i know would have done this... They would have ONLY replaced the original heads that were supplied and NOT... sent a much more expensive heads as i did.
After this 1st round i'd seen how you can FLIP FLOP around.....and with all the info i was sent... in regards to your engine OVERHEATING & being WAY out'a tune....and the constant fig'n round with by NON qualified people / EXCEPT Crazy Horse..they are the ONLY ones that gave specs when i asked & LISTENED to me in regards to SETTINGS...
NO specs were EVER sent... by you or the bondo boys.. as i requested over & over again.

Of course you "had a STRONG feeling this would NOT be the last i'd heard..." Because sooner or later someone would tumble the fact that the engoine was NOT as Speced and Paid For! Your $1000for replacing the heads only came out of the extra profit you pocketed through under building the engine.

Just because it is 7 years old doesn't make it irrelavent! You tried to pull a fastone then and got caught! Nothing changes really!
