It's just your perception to take it as bragging because you thought it was impossible, because you've never seen it done with your own two eyes.

That's also what makes it unparalleled.


Why dip into the 5's just one time Mike....put my motor in it and run 5s all day every day.

You have no idea how you make yourself look saying you DIPPED into the 5s


Your engine, if you even own one, has the potential for any claim you make, competing at Fantasy Land Dragway.

As I previously stated, accurately. Big Grin


I don't own one....I own TWO!

Mike there are several on here that race at the same tracks I do regularly and I don't need to post a video nor a timeslip to prove anything to you.

I've never claimed anything but I can say my smallblock will run with any other 23* there is.

Your car runs good but you're not doing anything that anyone else can't do.

I never said "can't do". Can't do is too subjective a claim to make, by any rational person.

I said haven't done - unparalleled.

Went 1.34 / 4.12 / 6.48 / 10.36 yesterday on a 45 degree test and tune track.
It's going to be a ticket printer.


But I'm just a hilljack career test and tuner with junk...

Dave, I am glad you got the thing sorted out and running good! Wink

When people I know get tired of getting out run by THE RIPPER n/a Brodix 23 sbc, they buy baby blowers.

Dunno why?


I was going to let this go and hope it would die a quick and painless death, but it just isn't happening.

So, ONCE AGAIN, you fail to grasp the subject and turn it into some way to crow about your dumb ****, for whatever reason.

NEVER in any of my posts regarding my engine has there been any indication that "going fast" is any part of the discussion. I expressed disappointment in my new engine performance, tracked the issue to cylinder heads which aren't as cool as I thought they were, bought some new heads that I feel are a good value in terms of materials, domestic sourced content, and workmanship. I'm now pleased with the performance of my engine and my purchase. Updated as I went for the reading enjoyment of those who found it interesting or entertaining.
END OF STORY

Give it a rest. Roll Eyes

You remind me VERY much of another blowhard who thought himself the King of "Stocker" ("arguably the quickest/fastest / deep staged, A-B-A test and tune oval port steel head"), pig-block Chevelles and DQ cruising with with Goombas....

Just turned out that those parts I bought in 1999 weren't as cool as I thought.
Oh well, I have another really nice set of heads for a small cubic inch or mild street SBC.
