ANOTHER????? now i see how you can afford to mod the mods so much that is very of them AGAIN!!!!!! are those pistons ok?? i had one crack on me in my old roadrunner from floating a valve once. it took a while but.... no compression in that hole. cracked in between the compression ring and oil ring. but EG you would probably get somebody to send you a new 7.0l z06 motor for nothing. and make us all even more jealous of the stuff you have on the GROND good for you though. you will be ripping around in no time.

hey i saw the vid you sent. you guys are nuts kinda gives me a reason to go for a drive on my days off

If it gets to a point where you need a couple more stock heads I'll eventually have a pair I can send you... well, once ECS does my heads and cam and gears and TC.

Hope you aren't in a rush though...

Good luck with Grond.

Ok, you got me here EG... I've always said if I was going to build a car (Street rod) I'd HAVE to put a 572 in it... 650 HP, 625 lb ft torque... It's a no brainer!!
My boss has a 454 in a '66 Chevelle that is super cherry and that 454... WOW!! It'll break the tires loose at 65 and cruising!!

I know I'm off track here, sorry.... but a 572!!!!

ECS Rocks!! Nice job of taking care of EG... He gets you guys exposure for sure!! All of it good!!
