I have been hearing from several sources that the aftermarket vega boxes are not as good as the originals, the local rebuilder won't rebuild them at all.

They are still worlds better than the Corvair boxes. I would not use a corvair box in any new build. With their aluminum case they are not very strong, and the turning radius they provide is small..

Later, mikey
