For those that complain about Procomp products or china origan... ck out the statement of origan for AFR, RHS,Pratirot, and many of the other popular aluminum head buliders, as the same with the popular SCAT,EAGLE,K1...U might be surprised !!!!
FOOD FOR THOUGHT; Are u aware that Procomp heads are like a blank-
slate !! Meaning that any company with a CNC machine can imprent their
logal on the end of Procomp heads !

AFR and RHS are both cast in the US, I've never heard of "Pratirot" heads, but Patriot heads are cast off shores. Almost every car guy and their neighbor knows this.

SCAT, Eagle, and K1 are all also cast off shores, again not new news...

Next week I'm sure you'll be telling us how most gasoline at the pump has at least some small amount of ethanol in it or how the EPA has required oil companies to remove ZDDP from their oil...

And, I believe Edelbrock has their own aluminum foundry here in the States as well. Gotta believe their heads are cast domestically.

Procomp has inclusions and air pockets in the casting if you mill one or do porting and get one by chance you wouldn't be so true to the brand!! The materials in china are crap Any one who buys cheep gets what they pay for!!!

The Chinese can make products that are just as well made as any in the world, you just have to pay them more to get more quality.
Last I heard, most all aftermarket cranks were either forged or cast in China, but some were also machined there while others were machined in the USA. The only completely US made cranks are billet.

There are many FORGED cranks that are still 100% made in the USA, cast on the other hand...

There are also many good parts that come from overseas, a lot of damn fine parts from Europe and Japan, but no one ever brings that stuff into it.

The greens will never let this happen. All BNSF wanted to do was ship coal to China through Seattle to help our nation with its balance of payments deficit with them. But NO, the greens came out in force with their bicycles and Prius's to stop it. So the poor working class people put out of work at the closed up industries can't even walk along the tracks to pickup spilt coal to burn for a little heat in this rain soaked just above freezing paradise.

You say that like you did that when you were young !!!:( I did with my mother and 2 buckets! I grew up next to a switch yard and there was always a lot of coal next to the tracks! I haven't thought about that in many many years!
I used to put bottle caps on the tracks to see them flattened! And a coke was a nickle.
