Kinda pissed off as they where purchased a month and a half ago, they better be here for April 7th or I'm gonna be more pissed. What do ya do.

What's the purpose of sending cools alone? I would have called them everyday until they were hassseled enough to accelerate the order just to shut me up. If you take payment then you damn well have my **** in the mail.

Put a 460hp/520tq 454 in the vel on Saturday. Got it dialed in now but Definately needs suspension work as it feels like a bowl of jello at 100

About 4 years ago. It was supposed to be a ls5 convertable with an ls6 engine. It idled smooth and had oval port heads, but it was way to cheap, and the most beautiful paint I had ever seen so sold. Engine smoked and seamed weak so I pulled it for a rebuild. It was 8-1 compression with the ****tiest heads gm ever built so I found a dyno fresh BBC in little falls mn. Picked it up Friday night, was cooking tires at noon on Saturday lol.

I've been trying. Their phone system sucks ***. Just today was the first time in 3 weeks I've been able to talk to someone without them having to call me back. I'm sure they are an awesome company just trying to work through loosing it all and starting over, that isn't easy. I was very close to emailing them and getting my $ back, but fox shocks are almost twice the $. Patience is my only option.

Those old cars are simple. Would have taken a lot less time if I wasn't worried about the car. In high school a buddy wanted to see what his hot small block would do in my 75 Camaro, he tackled his I went after mine, 2 hours later my engine was swinging and his was in my car driving out the door.

Been doing this **** a long time. This is my 91 s-10 in 96, drove this to high school. Many people told me you can't put a 350 In a 4x4 s-10 so I decided to prove them wrong. I had to build a 3 piece oil pan and the crank was about .25 inch from the front diff, but I built that truck from the ground up when I was 17, then drove it 10,000 miles and sold it for way more than I had in it. A guy in a neighboring town still has it sitting in his garage.
