Yeah, I thought the same about yours . Make a blanket statement like that and expect no comment.....? I am old enough that I have built my share of performance engines over the years. Crate engines be they Chevy, Ford, or Chrysler or a specialty shop, are an exceptional value for todays rodders. I doubt very seriously I could have built an engine equal to the Fastburn in my 34, considering all the machining, aluminum heads and the like for what I paid for it. In addition to a one year warranty from GM. I do not knock anyone who takes the initiative to build their own engines. I think you would come off sounding a lot more credible IMO if you would not knock people who choose to buy a crate engine.

BTW the Z06 is not mine, it's my son's.
