My stock one has 149000 miles on it and sees 6000 RPM on a regular basis. I'm afraid to look at it.

Gregg, you went with Pro-Race right? I wanted to check back and see how that was working out for you.

"So far, so good"...is good.
How many miles on it now?

How did it look upon initial inspection?

I've been thinking about trying them for a side project and/or replacement when the time comes.

Crap, I just bought a Scat D-80000 and now see that it is actually a PP 80000 And this is the non SFI, so I probably have no chance. I guess this one's going on the shelf and not the car!

Mine's been in only for about 2k miles. The motor was just launched in Aug. I'm not sure what you're asking about for "inspection". The timing marks line up as expected with TDC at the keyway. It still looks on the mark (I looked today).

Here's a couple pics. (BTW, I chose the model with the removable weight which can be used with internal or external motors.)



Here it is, mounted and sitting TDC....

Thanks!

By inspection I just meant, did it look good, feel good, feel like junk, visual defects etc. Sounds like it was good.
