Cobalt.All prepackaged engines priced to sell orbit around the $$$$$ and because the way business works those engines had to have low dollar parts included in them or not completely machine work.Logic prevails.

Other than the TRADE magazine Engine Builder Mag,another mag that I am no sure is around anymore was the Bracket Racing mag which had some real street articles.

Btw-I am getting to like you some.LOL.Just understand the amount of effort it take to post these long exchanges because of badly infected arthritis and diabetic nerve damaged hands. Hehe thank god for spell check.

I don't see why you seem to have such a problem w/that short block. While profit has to be made, forged Probe pistons, Scat cast crank and torque plate honing are not cut rate parts or operations. The bearings are King, BTW. Decent parts for a decent price IMO. Coast has been around since at least the '90s. West coast guys prob. know them better, shipping to the right coast precludes any chance of me buying from them, even if I was in the market.

Now as far as the rest of this deal, sometimes it seems to me that you glance at something then jump to a conclusion before giving it due consideration. Maybe I'm wrong- just saying what it looks like to ME. No big deal, it all comes out in the wash anyway.
