Re: What happened here

Does anyone really need a 300mph 1000hp sportscar ? Youtube is loaded with videos demonstrating that such vehicles are not a good match with the driving skills of the people who can actually afford them. So I don't think that the drivers of lifted trucks are the only ones compensating for their sho...

Good to know that the DNJ quality is OK. When I got my set years ago, the quality seemed decent. If only someone at DNJ would change the oil return slot into oil return holes.

The DNJ pistons have worked out well for people's builds? This is the second engine I've built that utilizes those pistons. OST-032, Skippy... that engine was also built using the DNJ pistons, Skippy's engine is now being used in a FX16 built for rally use. https://instagram.fvno1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v...
