Take my word for it guys, when I was trolling on the import
groups I would get two or three screen names and really stir
up some trouble.
I have a little feeling that's whats going on right here.

I'm not a ricer, and don't think I ever will be. I thought about buying a 4 cyl mustang, but it's just not near enough power. My cousin's friend has a civic that's one of the fastest around this area and it's not even as fast as my 69 F-250 was and that truck was 7,000 POUNDS!!! There is a couple of reasons not to buy a ricer 4 cyl piece of shi t.

Oh, back on topic, I wouldn't come to a forum that I want to stay on just to cause trouble.

I just got to thinking, if I was to get a new screen name, I think I would post my location as South Dakota, Iowa, Michigan, California, North Carolina, or something like that. Nowhere near Missouri. Plus, I wouldn't get a new screen name anytime soon, I would wait about 2 weeks and then come back, that way you just got over the **** I would have caused if I was to do that and then I would keep it going again. But I'm not a ***** like that.

You will just have to understand how we are a little spooked by this whole thread. It will have to be proven to us..........

I've grown out of that. it's better to do somthing positive insted
of harassing people that don't know any better.

but I remember being 15, and it's kinda hard not to be a *******.
lol

Good question......I am a little older than that, and at times I wonder how I am going to afford stuff.

I just built my engine and it's a 355ci. I bought a block for $50 here locally and took it apart, drug it up to Dick's Machine Shop where it was bored .030 over, checked for cracks, and the crank was ground. That cost me $55 due to a price mix up when it was supposed to cost me $110 ! There is $105 total. I went to CTM (Local Performance Shop) and ordered :

Keith black 30 over hyp. pistons
Crane Cams camshaft and lifter kit
Aluminum Connecting rods
ARP rod bolts
and valve springs for ~$800 (Good price here)

And then everything else from summit. That's about a 325-350 hp engine, but it's not broken in yet...

Last of all, I would like to know why I'm being punished by some because of something that someone else did?

and give their honest opinion.

What, you live in Ash Grove and didn't buy any parts from Beck's?!? Just think, all you had to do is drag that nasty ol' block over to Beck's and I would have hauled it to O'Reilly machine shop for you!!! On second thought, Thanks, Thanks a BUNCH!!!!!!!
